About

The young multi-talented Andri JoŽl Harison was born in Vienna in 1995 and started showing interest in piano playing at the age of just 13 months. Later he also took great interest in composing and conducting, and consequently is now studying at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. His second recording spotlights on the variety of styles of the musical genres of Viennese classical and romantic music. The album contains pieces like Beethovenís Sonata in A flat major, op.26, the Sonata in A major, Op. post. 120 D664, by Franz Schubert, the Hungarian Rhapsody No.2 by Franz Liszt and the waltzes An der schŲnen blauen Donau, op.314, and Wiener Bonbons, op.307, by Johann Strauss (Son) in arrangements by Harison. Die kleine Fledermaus are paraphrases by Andri JoŽl Harison on themes by Johann Strauss from the famous operetta Die Fledermaus.

Andri JoŽl Harison performs as an arranger, conductor, composer, pianist, improvisator and singer. At the age of six, he went to basic music classes for children at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. Between 2007 and 2014 he has won several prizes in the young musician competition ďprima la musicaĒ as a soloist as well as with chamber ensembles. In 2012 his arrangement (for two clarinets and piano) of Francis Poulencís Sonata for two clarinets (1918) was awarded first place in the same competition, as he was performing with the Trio Traumhaft.

On 16 June 2011 the Austrian television ORF broadcasted a special documentary about the highly talented young musician. Andri JoŽl Harison is currently studying orchestral conducting at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna and additionally intends to focus on his own compositions as well as on his own arrangements. His perfomances include guest appearances in numerous renowned theatres and concert halls.
