Andreas Vollenweider In-depth Biography

Andreas Vollenweider} was one of the few musicians to gain superstar status as a "new age artist" back when the term was first used as a marketing category in the mid-'80s. The Swiss harpist, however, quickly transcended the need for alternative record sales when his albums simultaneously broached Billboard}'s pop, jazz, and classical charts in 1986. Born in Zurich in 1953, Vollenweider} was ensconced in the city's fine art scene, courtesy of his father, one of Europe's leading organists. After becoming proficient on guitar, flute, and other instruments, the young Vollenweider} developed a passion for the harp, which he modified to suit his needs. Not only did he construct a damper to expedite more rhythmic playing, he broadened the harp's tonal range by electrifying it. His buoyant funk beats, exotic pan-cultural influences, and colorful harp improvisations began to sweep Europe in the early '80s as Vollenweider} signed with CBS Records to release Behind the Gardens...Behind the Wall}. Three albums later, he won his first Grammy for 1987's Down to the Moon}. Over the years, Vollenweider} has managed to maintain his artistic integrity and vision despite increasing commercial success. The harpist's 1991 album Book of Roses} is a testament to his ability to expand his scope as a composer while keeping his trademark sound intact; after a lenghty hiatus, he issued Kryptos} in 1998, followed two years later by Cosmopoly}. ~ Linda Kohanov, All Music Guide
