Praised by critics for his passionate expression and dazzling technique, pianist Andrew Armstrong has delighted audiences across Asia, Europe, Latin America, Canada, and the United States, including performances at many of the world’s great halls.
Andrew’s orchestral engagements across the globe have seen him perform a sprawling repertoire of more than 50 concertos with orchestra. He has performed with such conductors as Peter Oundjian, Itzhak Perlman, Günther Herbig, Stefan Sanderling, Jean-Marie Zeitouni, and Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, and has appeared in solo recitals in chamber music concerts with the Elias, Alexander, American, and Manhattan String Quartets, and also as a member of the Caramoor Virtuosi, Boston Chamber Music Society, Seattle Chamber Music Society, and the Jupiter Symphony Chamber Players.
Beginning in 2018, Andrew became Artistic Director of the Chamber Music on Main series at the Columbia Museum of Art in South Carolina. That same year, he also was appointed Director of the Green Lake Festival of Music’s Chamber Music Camp in Ripon, Wisconsin.
He has released several award-winning recordings with his longtime recital partner James Ehnes -- most recently Beethoven’s Sonatas Nos. 6 & 9, to stellar reviews, Gramophone’s Editor’s Choice, and Sunday Times’ Disc of the Week. In the 2019-20 and ‘20-21 Seasons, the duo celebrates the 250th Birthday of Beethoven by recording the master’s complete ten Violin Sonatas as well as performing the cycle in major cities around the world.
Andrew is devoted to outreach programs and playing for children. In addition to his many concerts, his performances are heard regularly on National Public Radio and WQXR, New York City's premier classical music station.
Mr. Armstrong lives happily in Massachusetts, with his wife Esty, their three children including one-year-old Gabriel and big siblings Jack & Elise, their two dogs Comet & Dooker, and betta fish Gerald.
