Julian Schneemann (The Netherlands, 1992) is a Dutch pianist. In 2011, Julian won the composition prize “Op weg naar het Nieuwjaarsconcert”. He studied jazz piano at the Conservatory of Amsterdam and graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2015, and in that same year released his debut album Roundabout. The album, described by Allaboutjazz.com as “An integral, coherent artistic statement” brought the worlds of classical, jazz and pop music together into a single story, and was internationally well-acclaimed. In 2016, Julian released the album FLY with the ensemble Ikarai, which tells the story of Icarus in sound. FLY was described as “A journey I can recommend to anyone” by Dutch TV-host Tijl Beckand. Currently, Julian’s main focus is on his project Caravan: A journey through the worlds of classical, jazz and folk.
