    Andreas Haefliger

    The Swiss pianist Andreas Haefliger, who was born in Berlin in 1962, was accepted as a student by the Juilliard School in New York at the age of 15, where he took Herbert Stessin’s piano class. Awarded several prizes, he began his career in the United States and soon appeared as a soloist with orchestras such as the New York and Los Angeles Philharmonics; the Boston, Chicago, and San Francisco Symphonies; and the Cleveland and Philadelphia Orchestras. He made his debut at London’s Wigmore Hall in 1993, which led to numerous engagements in Europe, including at the Salzburg Festival, the Vienna Festival, and the BBC Proms. Haefliger has performed with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, the London Symphony and the Philharmonia Orchestras, the Orchestre de Paris, the Rotterdam Philharmonic, and the Budapest Festival Orchestra. His series “Perspectives,” which combines Ludwig van Beethoven’s oeuvre with works from Mozart to Ligeti, has been widely acclaimed. In addition to presenting the project at London’s Wigmore Hall, he is also documenting it on CD; the most recent episode, “Perspectives 7,” was released in April 2018. In spring 2019, Andreas Haefliger will premiere Dieter Ammann’s new Piano Concerto with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra under Susanna Mälkki; he will subsequently perform the work with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Munich Philharmonic, among others. Haefliger also appears regularly as a pianist in lieder recitals, most recently with baritone Andrè Schuen; his recording of Schu-bert’s Goethe lieder with Matthias Goerne received the German Record Critics’ Prize. In the 2018-19 season, he has engagements as a chamber musician in Rotterdam, Antwerp, Madrid, Bilbao, and Hong Kong with violinists Cho-Liang Lin and Martin Beaver, violist Lise Berthaud, and cellist Julian Steckel.

    LUCERNE FESTIVAL (IMF) debut on 24 August 1985 as part of the “Young Artists” series in a recital with his brother, Michael Haefliger, playing violin sonatas by Ives, Beethoven, and Strauss.
