Pianist Andrew Tyson is emerging as a distinctive and intriguing musical voice. First Prize Winner of the 2011 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, he makes his New York debut in the Rhoda Walker Teagle Concert at Merkin Hall and his Washington, DC debut at the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theater this season in the Young Concert Artists Series. This season, Mr. Tyson gives concerts twice in his home state of North Carolina: at the Lincoln Cultural Center and in the St. Stephen’s Concert Series, and also plays at the Falany Center for the Performing Arts in Georgia, the Lied Center of Kansas, the Levine School of Music in Washington, DC, the El Paso Chopin Music Festival in Texas, and the International Keyboard Institute & Festival at the Mannes College of Music in New York.
At the 2012 Leeds International Piano Competition, Mr. Tyson won both 5th Prize and the new Terence Judd – Hallé Orchestra Prize, which is awarded by the Orchestra’s musicians and its Music Director, Sir Mark Elder. The Prize brought three performances of Rachmaninoff’s Concerto No. 2 with the Orchestra in November 2012, which resulted in his being re-engaged for next season.
