Jimmy Smits introduced American pianist Andrew von Oeyen to millions of PBS viewers at the July 09 event "A Capitol Fourth." In the star-studded program, Andrew joined Michael Feinstein and the National Symphony in a performance of Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue".
In his first solo recording, Andrew presents the depth and breadth of Liszt's piano music - the grand design, the deep poetry, the ever-present song. Liszt's involvement in opera is well represented in this album, with affecting paraphrases of Wagner (Tristan und Isolde, Lohengrin) and Verdi (Rigoletto).
Worldwide concert audiences hail Andrew as an exciting soloist with major orchestras, and in top recital and Festival series. "As for star quality, von Oeyen is already risen…. leaves you convinced that he can do absolutely anything he likes with a keyboard." (Chicago Tribune)
"Andrew von Oeyen, keenly attuned to Liszt's grand design…I would go so far as to say that von Oeyen played the finest all-around performance of Franz Liszt's Sonata in B Minor that I have heard in many years." Washington Post
