Coming from a rich tradition, pianist Andreas Haefliger “belongs to that elite group of interpreters...one of the most serious, questing pianists on the circuit today...breathtaking virtuosity...a complete Beethovenian” -The Daily Telegraph, May 2018

Haefliger was born into a distinguished Swiss musical family and grew up in Germany, going on to study at the Juilliard School in New York. He was quickly recognized as a pianist of the first rank, and engagements with major US orchestras followed swiftly—the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Pittsburgh, Chicago and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestras among them. In his native Europe, Haefliger has appeared with the great orchestras and festivals, including the Royal Concertgebouw, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Munich Philharmonic, Budapest Festival Orchestra, Deutsche Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Orchestre de Paris, London Symphony Orchestra and Vienna Symphony. He has ongoing regular relationships with the Lucerne and Edinburgh Festivals, Vienna Konzerthaus, and other major halls across North America and Asia.

Haefliger is a regular visitor to London’s Wigmore Hall with his “Perspectives” series, in which he performs the complete piano works of Beethoven alongside works by other composers from Mozart to Ligeti. This series has formed the focus of Haefliger’s solo recital appearances and CD recordings in recent years.
