The New York Times has called German pianist Andreas Klein "a fascinating artist with all the indispensable qualities: temperament, taste, touch, tone, the four T's of pianism… a pianist who makes silences sound like music." Klein has performed in the world's most prestigious venues, including London's Wigmore Hall, Berlin's Philharmonic Hall, New York's Carnegie Hall, and Washington D.C.'s Kennedy Center. He is the subject of a PBS special, "Intermezzo with Andreas Klein."
