Collaborator & Soloist
In demand as a collaborative pianist, Andrew John Kosinski frequently shares the stage with artists of the highest caliber such as Gregory Turay (former Metropolitan Opera tenor), Eryn LeCroy (former Christine in Broadway's Phantom of the Opera), and Kenneth DeCarlo (American Ballet Theatre Orchestra). His "tight ensemble work" has contributed to colleagues winning prizes in major competitions such as the National Trumpet Competition. Andrew has enjoyed accompanying recitals and concerto competitions for students at the Brevard Music Center, James Madison University, Rutgers University, and the NY Flute Club Competition. Students Andrew has coached and accompanied have won multiple first prizes and honorable mentions in New Jersey State Youth Orchestra's annual concerto competition.
In July of 2022 Andrew makes his concerto solo debut performing Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Vienna International Orchestra as part of Vienna Concertofest. Earlier this season, Andrew delivered the world premiere of Florence Price's Preludes in a guest artist recital at Montgomery College which also featured works by Chopin, Rachmaninoff, and Dvorak. In June, Andrew looks forward to serving as the collaborative piano apprentice at the National Music Festival in Chestertown, Maryland.
As a prodigious teenager Andrew recorded Johannes Brahms's complete Liebeslieder Op. 52 & Op. 65 for vocal quartet and piano four-hands alongside his then teacher Vladislav Kovalsky. This album, produced by Glass Bottom Studios, is available on Spotify and all major streaming platforms. Among his main mentors Andrew cites Steinway Artist Vladislav Kovalsky and Lily Chang as well as his childhood teachers Gerry Brahney and Gay Schelling who fostered his early love for music. Andrew has also taken lessons and masterclasses with Min Kwon and Tibor Szasz.
