Hailed by BBC Radio 3 as “a real poet of the piano,” American Andrew Tyson is emerging as a distinctive and important new musical voice. He is consistently recognized for his commanding and expressive performances, replete with imaginative interpretations and exceptional artistry. Recipient of a highly coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant, Mr. Tyson won Fifth Prize and was awarded the Terence Judd - Hallé Orchestra prize at the 2012 Leeds International Piano Competition. From this honor arose an extensive partnership not only with the Hallé Orchestra, with which he has performed numerous times to critical acclaim, but also with the Hallé Soloists, with whom he appears in chamber music concerts throughout the UK.
A Laureate of the Queen Elisabeth Competition, Mr. Tyson has performed throughout the United States and Europe, appearing to rave reviews as soloist with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, the Colorado Symphony, the National Orchestra of Belgium, and the Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie, among many others.
