The German-born Klein has established a reputation as a dynamic and compelling performer who is known for his imaginative interpretations and his command of a wide range of tonal colors. According to the New York Times, Klein is "A fascinating artist with all the indispensable qualities: temperament, taste, touch, tone, the four Ts of pianism."

Klein’s website, http://www.andreasklein.com/bio.shtml, relates that his "career as orchestra soloist and recitalist has taken him to the world's most prestigious venues from London's Wigmore Hall, Berlin's Philharmonic Hall, New York's Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, and the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. In Europe as well as in the USA, Mexico and Middle East, he has gained critical acclaim for his performances in major cities such as Berlin, Rome, Milan, Bern, Leipzig, Dresden, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, DC, Cleveland, Damascus, and Mexico City." The Tagesspiegel wrote on his performance with the world renowned Berlin Philharmoniker playing Mozart's Concerto KV 459: "humorous flamboyancy and impeccable technique, grace, melodious sound and plenty of brilliance.&qout;

Klein’s performance at UWFox is free and open to the public with unreserved seating. For more information about his appearance at the Menasha campus, contact Jeff Kuepper, Student Activities Coordinator, at 920-832-2671, or email jeff.kuepper@uwc.edu.
