American pianist Andrew von Oeyen emerged from a vigorous recital career into stardom with recordings on the Warner Classics label in the middle and late 2010s. He has specialized in virtuoso repertory of Liszt and of Russian composers, and also in French music. Of German and Dutch background, von Oeyen was born in the U.S. on November 12, 1979. He has also maintained a strong cultural identification with France, divides his time between Paris and Los Angeles, and has dubbed himself a Parisian American. Beginning piano lessons at age five, von Oeyen was already performing with orchestras at ten, and he made his debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Esa-Pekka Salonen at 16. He studied at the Juilliard School and Columbia University in New York, winning several prestigious prizes including, in 1999, the Gilmore Young Artists Award.
