Andrew Tyson

CONCERTS 1, 2, 3, 4 & 6

"Scintillating yet sensitive...Mr Tyson is a poetic vituoso."
New York Times

Hailed by BBC Radio 3 as ‘a real poet of the piano’, Andrew Tyson’s youth belies his achievements. When a student at the Curtis Institute and then the Juilliard School, Andrew won the Gina Bachauer Piano Competition and received the Arthur Rubinstein Prize in Piano. A winner of the Young Concert Artist auditions (New York), he is also a laureate of the Géza Anda Competition in Zurich (First Prize, Mozart and Audience Prizes), and the Leeds International Piano Competition (the Terence Judd-Hallé Orchestra, awarded by the orchestra and conductor Sir Mark Elder).

From his home state of North Carolina, Andrew now performs with orchestras across America and Europe. Recital appearances include major venues and festivals around the globe, including Brussels’ Palais des Beaux Arts and New York’s Carnegie Hall. As a chamber musician, Andrew regularly appears in recital with violinist Benjamin Beilman, including a major tour with Musica Viva in 2016.
