Biography and career[edit]

Andrei Ivanovitch, great-grandson of the Romanian composer Ion Ivanovici (The Waves of the Danube), studied at the Central Music School, at the Leningrad Conservatory, at the Music Academy in Moscow and at the Musical College in Karlsruhe.[2] He won several prizes in international competitions, amongst others he won the gold medal at the World Piano Competition in Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S..[3] The specialised press compares him to Dinu Lipatti and Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli[1][citation needed]. Since 2003, he is honorary member of the Chopin Society. His numerous concerts in Europe earned him the reputation of being one of the great Interpreters of Russian piano music. The Canadian film Glenn Gould: The Russian Journey[4] with Ivanovitch interpreting The Art of Fugue[5] by Johann Sebastian Bach was awarded with the Grand at the International Festival of Films on Art in Montreal[6][not in citation given]. During his Germany tours he always gave guest performances at Hummer's Culture Parlour [1] in Soßmar (whose owner, Gerhard Hummer, he's been friends with for several years), which made him a great following in this region. During his tour in 2007, he met the classical pianist Eyran Katsenelenbogen in the Hummer's Culture Parlour [2] in Soßmar, in order to create a new kind of piano concerts.[7]
