Andreas Boyde

Press

“Andreas Boyde is full of musical mischief and once more wowed the audience in a packed Kiel Concert Hall, this time with Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. Boyde played the highly virtuosic piano part with spontaneous humour and trenchant clarity. His mercurial interpretation inspired the orchestra, together giving a particularly compelling performance.”

“A player of great depth”
Belfast Telegraph

“Pianist and Artist in Residence Andreas Boyde dazzled with powerful prowess par excellence and proved to be an expert of High Romantic piano repertoire. He also held longer monologues full of poetic reflection in the second movement. Combining a daring drive with his virtuosic light touch, the performance propelled to its rousing conclusion. After rapturous applause and bravos, Andreas Boyde moved the audience with an intimate ‘Albumblatt’ by Franz Schubert.”
