German pianist Andreas Klein will be performing at the Crooked Tree Arts Center in Petoskey Saturday, October 7. He has distinguished himself as a dynamic and compelling performer with his command of a wide range of tonal colors and imaginative interpretations. “A fascinating artist with all the indispensable qualities: temperament, taste, touch, tone, the four T’s of pianism,” says The New York Times. “A pianist who makes silences sound like music.”
Klein’s career as an orchestra soloist and recitalist has taken him to the world’s most prestigious venues: London’s Wigmore Hall, Berlin’s Philharmonic Hall, New York’s Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall and Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center. Andreas Klein has been a frequent guest on WGBH Boston, APR in St. Paul, WFMT Chicago and KUHF in Houston.
He was the subject of a “Musicians Portrait” in Germany and “Intermezzo with Andreas Klein” was televised by PBS.
A graduate of the Juilliard School with a Doctoral of Musical Arts from Rice University, Andreas complemented his studies with the legendary Claudio Arrau and Nikita Magaloff. He currently divides his time between New York and Berlin.
