Konstantin Reinfeld

Konstantin Reinfeld is a musical sensation from a young age. Since his early years of playing harmonica, Konstantin Reinfeld has been called a “wunderkind”. He is now one of the most highly respected and well-respected players and instructors around the globe. His chromatic playing of diatonic Hohner harmonicas is technically and emotionally mature.

These recordings show Reinfeld that his compositions transcend all genre boundaries and are not restricted to any one particular category. He explores new territory musically, stylistically, and with his diatonic instrument. Konstantin has been a sought-after harmonica player worldwide since the release of his debut album.
