Born in Berlin, Malte studied classical piano with Käthe Heinemann (pupil of Eugen d‘Albert). Additionally he developed a particular talent for improvisation.
Though a most versatile musician, in recent years, Malte returns to his roots in classical piano playing while developing a report of his masterfulness in different styles of the ‘touch’.
Many concert tours abroad took him to Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Sweden, Spain, Taiwan, and also regularly to Colombia. During his Colombia tours he played a combined repertoire of classical and his own compositions based on Latin-American poetry, and gave master classes at the conservatories of Bogotá, Medellín, Ibagué and Cartagena de Indias.
In his younger years, his group ‘Topspin’ achieved an excellent reputation in Berlin‘s jazz scene. In the various periods of his career he gained a broad experience in many music styles.
During his engagements at the Berlin Schiller Theater, the Berliner Kammerspiele (musical) and the Otto-Braun-Saal (Latin-American classics) he worked for directors like Anna Vaughan, Bob Edwards and Christoph Hagel. His partners include the singers Del Fionn Sykes, Keith Tynes (opera and gospel, USA), Bubacar Jammeh (Afro) and Simone Foltran (lyrical soprano, Brasil).
