Andrew Zolinsky [Concert]


Pianist Andrew Zolinsky is one of the most distinctive musical voices of his generation. His unique style of programming and his individual interpretations have secured performances at many prestigious venues and festivals.

“Andrew Zolinsky's fine account of Busoni's recension of Liszt's first Mephisto Waltz is another compelling reason to buy this beautifully recorded disc.” Calum MacDonald, BBC Music Magazine. A passionate advocate of the idea that music of all eras should co-exist, Andrew is most at home in programmes that link past and present, but equally shines in all-contemporary or all-traditional programmes

 Has performed standard repertoire and lesser-known 20th century works with prestigious UK orchestras such as BBC Symphony Orchestra; BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra; BBC National Orchestra of Wales; London Sinfonietta; London Concert Orchestra. Has performed in UK, Ireland, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Japan, New York, Latvia, Spain and Taiwan.

 Andrew has performed a programme of American music at Southbank Centre as part of The Rest is Noise/International Piano Series. He has played recitals in the New Music Dublin festival, the Piano Rarities Festival, Germany, the Gaida Festival, Latvia and recently performed Stockhausen’s Kontakte at Kings Place London and two programmes of Russian piano music at the National Concert Hall Dublin as part of the Hall’s ‘Russian Revolution Centenary’.

 Closely associated with the music of David Lang, Ivan Fedele, Simon Holt, Michael Zev Gordon; performed the London premiere of Unsuk Chin’s Piano Concerto, and London premiere of her Double Concerto.
