It was at the age of 8 that Frin Wolter discovered a passion for the accordion (and the djembe!). Later, at the Luxembourg Conservatory, he will also study the piano and will be interested very early in chamber music and acapella singing. After having passed his 1st prize there with distinction in the class of Maurizio Spiridigliozzi, he joined the Pôle Supérieur de Lille in the accordion class of Vincent Lhermet, where he also perfected his writing and analysis. There he discovered a passion for the French baroque repertoire which he enjoyed transcribing on the accordion.

 

In 2015, culture shock! He moved to Finland, a country known for its progressive teaching methods and for its great culture of the accordion. At the prestigious Sibelius Academy in Helsinki and with master Matti Rantanen, he works on contemporary repertoire as well as Scandinavian and Balkan folk music. In 2021, he finished his Performance and Teaching Masters there.

 

At the same time as his academic career, he won several international accordion competitions (Concours Accordé'Opale, Prix Anne and Françoise Groben, Concours Accart…) and regularly collaborates with the contemporary music ensemble “United Instruments of Lucilin”. In 2019 he participated in the creation of the opera "The Sleeping Thousand" by Adam Maor and Yonatan Levy at the Aix-en-Provence opera festival with this ensemble.

Invited to the Académie Musicale de Villecroze, he receives advice from Vincent Peirani, an eminent personality in the worlds of jazz and world music. Frin takes courses with many other international personalities of the accordion including Teodoro Anzellotti, Veli Kujala, Mika Väyrynen, Geir Draugsvull, Mie Miki, Stefan Hussong, Silvain Tissot, Klemen Leben, Ina Hoffmann, Vladimir Blagojevic.
