Pianist Andrew Cooperstock performs widely as soloist and chamber musician and has appeared throughout six continents and in most of the fifty states, including performances at New York's Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and the United Nations. He has been featured in recitals and concerto appearances at the Chautauqua, Brevard, and Round Top music festivals, the Australian Festival of Chamber Music, and Hong Kong’s Hell Hot! New Music Festival, and on National Public Radio, Radio France, and the BBC. Winner of the National Federation of Music Clubs Artist Competition, he has since served as juror for numerous international competitions in the U.S. and China.
Cooperstock and violinist William Terwilliger, as the award-winning Opus Two, have recorded a series of critically acclaimed single-composer discs of American music dedicated to the works of Aaron Copland, George Gershwin, Robert Starer, Paul Schoenfield, and Lowell Liebermann, and Cooperstock’s recording Leonard Bernstein: Complete Solo Works for Piano was lauded by Gramophone as “winning” and “brilliant.” Cooperstock has also collaborated with the Takács Quartet, Dorian Wind Quintet, and Colorado Chamber Players as well as with Jamie Bernstein and Broadway actress-singers Marin Mazzie and Ashley Brown.
Dr. Cooperstock holds degrees from the Juilliard School and the Cincinnati and Peabody Conservatories. A Steinway pianist and recording artist for Bridge, Naxos, Azica, and Deutsche Grammophon, he is a member of the artist-faculty at the Saarburg (Germany) International Music Festival and Professor of Piano at the University of Colorado Boulder, where he recently served as Artistic Director of the University’s Bernstein at 100 celebration.
