NESKOWIN CHAMBER MUSIC
German pianist Andreas Klein will present the sixth concert in the 2015-2016 season of Neskowin Chamber Music on April 10 at 3 p.m. at Camp Winema.
His career as an orchestra soloist and recitalist has taken him to some of the world’s most prestigious venues: from London’s Wigmore Hall and Berlin’s Philharmonic Hall to Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center in the U.S. He is also a popular chamber musician, playing with the Salzburg Chamber Soloists in a number of U.S. and foreign cities. Another tour with the Festival Strings of Luzerne took him to ten cities in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. He tours throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Mexico, and even in such remote places as Damascus and Yerevan, Armenia.
Music reviews from all over the world herald Klein’s ability as a pianist. “Pianist who makes silences sound like music” (the New York Times), “Sensitive interpretation” (Times of London), and “Elaborate display of technical prowess” (Washington Post).
He has been a frequent guest on WGBH in Boston, APR in St. Paul, WFMT in Chicago, and KUHF in Houston. His recital at the Los Angeles County Museum was broadcast live. “Intermezzo with Andreas Klein” was televised by PBS.
Klein is a graduate of the Juilliard School in New York. He received a PhD in Musical Studies from Rice University. Copies of his doctoral dissertation on the Chopin Etudes are housed in the libraries of the Chopin Society in Vienna and Leipzig and can be downloaded from the Rice University Library.
Klein will hold an Outreach Program at Nestucca Elementary School in Cloverdale on April 11 at 9 a.m. The public is invited to attend.
