Andreas Haefliger, Andermatt Music

Andreas Haefliger

Andreas Haefliger comes from a rich tradition of music making and is acclaimed for his sensitivity, musical insights and transcendent pianism. Known for his innovative programming, he brings an all-encompassing passion and humanity to his concert appearances and recordings. At an early age he was surrounded by intense vocal artistry, thereby acquiring the beginnings of what would become a highly individual vocal piano sound, and a sense of natural lyricism in his music making. Having finished his studies at the Juilliard School, Haefliger soon thereafter performed with the major American and European orchestras. A superb recitalist, Haefliger has ongoing regular relationships with the Vienna Konzerthaus and Wigmore Hall, as well as the Lucerne and Edinburgh Festivals. Haefliger is as a uniquely insightful interpreter of Beethoven. In 2020, locked down in the Swiss Alps, he filmed Beethoven’s monumental op. 106 Hammerklavier sonata alongside interviews with the alpinist Dani Arnold in the gorgeous mountain scenery, for release in cinemas and online. In Autumn 2021 BIS Records (with whom Haefliger has an exclusive contract) release his recording of the Beethoven op. 31 sonatas, before resuming the Perspectives series in 2022 and beyond. Haefliger began his recording career with Sony Classical, later appearing on Decca with the Takács Quartet and also Matthias Goerne, with whom he won the Preis ”Der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik” for Schubert’s Goethe Songs.
