German Pianist Andreas Klein has distinguished himself as a dynamic and compelling performer with his command of a wide range of tonal colors and imaginative interpretations. The New York Times declared him "A fascinating artist with all the indispensable qualities: temperament, taste, touch, tone, the four T's of pianism" and "A pianist who makes silences sound like music”. His career as orchestra soloist and recitalist has taken him to the world's most prestigious venues: from London's Wigmore Hall, Berlin's Philharmonic Hall, New York's Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall, to Washington, DC's Kennedy Center. He gained critical acclaim for his performances in major cities such as Berlin, Rome, Milan, Bern, Leipzig, Dresden, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington DC, Cleveland, and Mexico City. Andreas Klein tours extensively throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Mexico.

Highlights from recent seasons include collaborations with the Minguet and Minetti String Quartets, a South American concert tour with the Salzburg Chamber Soloists performing Beethoven’s 4th Piano Concerto in Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, and Peru, and recitals and master classes throughout the US and Canada.
