Hailed by BBC Radio 3 as “a real poet of the piano,” Andrew Tyson has emerged as an important new musical voice. In 2015, he took First Prize at the Geza Anda Competition in Zurich, resulting in upwards of 100 concerts throughout Europe over the next three years. He is also a laureate of the prestigious Leeds International Piano Competition.
Other concerto appearances include the National Orchestra of Belgium conducted by Marin Alsop and the Orchestra of St Luke’s at Lincoln Center. Also in the U.S., Tyson has appeared in Boston, Miami, New York and Washington D.C. and, in Europe, he has performed in major cities from Brussels and Paris to Zurich. As a chamber musician, one of his partners has been violinist Benjamin Beilman, who appeared on Music Mondays last season.
A winner of the Young Concert Artists International Auditions in 2011, Mr. Tyson is also appearing on SILL in collaboration with YCA and the Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota, where he will give a solo recital on January 15th. His SILL appearances on January 16th will include both conversations and different live performances.
