ANDREI LICARET, PIANIST
Featuring classics by Enescu, Schumann, Debussy, and Chopin.
Andrei Licareţ, Pianist:
Hailed as a “musician who ventures to the very essence of music” (România Literară) and one whose “rich artistic maturity and depth go above and beyond ability alone” (L’Unione Sarda), Andrei Licareţ has performed concerts and recitals in major cities throughout Europe and the United States. Born in Bucharest, Romania, Mr. Licareţ began his piano studies with his father at the age of five. By the time he was eleven he made his orchestral debut performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto in C Major, K. 246 with the Chamber Orchestra of the Bucharest Philharmonic. He attended the George Enescu Music High School in Bucharest where he studied with Gabriela Enasescu. Continuing the early start to his performing career, Andrei has given concerts in Paris, Vendome, Santander, Berlin, Würzburg, Rome, Thessaloniki, Copenhagen, Istanbul, Prague, Tel-Aviv, Warsaw and Brussels. In the United States he has performed in New York City,
Washington, DC, Boston, Houston, Pella, New Jersey and Northhamptom. Invited by the leading Romanian orchestras to appear as soloist, he has collaborated with conductors Cristian Mandeal, Horia Andreescu, Jin Wang, Arnold Ostman, Arie Vardi, Ilarion Ionescu-Galaţi and Florentin Mihaescu. Andrei has had the honor of being broadcast on Romanian National Radio playing the works of Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin and Ravel. In addition, his playing has been seen and heard on Romanian National Television. Mr. Licareţ has won First Prize awards at the Jeuness Musicales, Bucharest Yamaha and the Lory Wallfish Prize competitions. Additionally, he was awarded Second Prizes at the Tel-Hai Competition and the Shreveport Concerto Competition. Among his illustrious teachers have been Viniciu Moroianu, Dana Borşan and Dan Dediu with whom he also studied composition at the Bucharest Conservatory. In Paris and Berlin, Andrei has studied with Jacques Rouvier and in Salzburg, Austria, Andrei has been a student of Dmitri Baskirov’s Mozarteum master classes. He has been a participant in the Steans Institute Program for Young Musicians at the Ravinia Festival. Andrei earned his Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees from
the Bucharest Music Conservatory. He recently completed his Graduate Performance Diploma and Artist Diploma at the Peabody Conservatory where he has studied under the legendary American pianist Leon Fleisher. Fleisher was once called “the pianistic find of the century”, making Andrei among the latest generation benefiting from his piano pedagogy. This scholarly history includes Artur Schnabel who studied with Theodor Leschetizky, tutored by Carl Czerny. Maestro Czerny was, in turn, a pupil of Ludwig van Beethoven.
