r,Andrejs Osokins evidently has very few peers and is regarded as one of the world's current best pianists. His playing is filled with exceptional emotional tensions, effortless technique, measureless depth and an inveterate mastery of tones. At his very best, he has a desirable manner of playing that makes the piano sound noteworthy, wholly natural and unostentatious whilst employing austere classical forms, the deceptive art of minimalism in music and an opulent array of extended paino techniques. Prelude in C Sharp minor Op 3 No 2 is no challenge and nowhere near a hurdle for Andrejs, and this version in particular, patently surpasses many other interpretations of the same. Many others themselves have described Andrejs as virtous, powerful, charismatic, and convincing in numerous styles of music beyond playing piano. Andrejs has recieved several major awards from the world's greatest piano competitions and he frequently performs at the Berliner Philharmonie, the Gasteig concert hall in munich, Konzerthaus Berlin and Auditorium La Verdi in Milan. He is a national recipient of The Grand Music Award, the highest form of state concession in the field of music in Latvia and was also awarded an Associate Of The Royal Academy Of Music In London.
Andrejs's sizeable repertoire further includes concerto performances with the National Orchestra of Belgium, the Orchestre philharmonique de Radio France, Manchester's The Hallé symphony orchestra, the Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra and Dublin's RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra. He has also been under direction by notable conductors Sir Mark Elder, Marin Alsop, Yuri Simonov, Bojan Videnov and James Judd, among others. He regularly recieves invitations to perform at exclusive venues such as the National Concert Hall , Wigmore Hall and Kings Place concert hall , the La Monnaie concert hall , the Opera Comique and the Symphony Hall. Andrejs is laureate of the world's most prominent piano competitions, including the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition, the Long-Thibaud International Competition, the Leeds International Piano Competition and the Queen Elisabeth International Piano Competition.
