A graduate of The Juilliard School, her mentors include Julius Baker, Jeanne Baxtresser and Aurèle Nicolet.

With his formidable technique and musicality, and his innate sense of architecture and phrasing, Andreas Haefliger is widely recognised as a pianist of the first rank. He has had engagements with major U.S. orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Pittsburgh, Chicago, and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestras, among others. In his native Europe, Haefliger was invited to great orchestras and festivals such as the Royal Concertgebouw, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Munich Philharmonic, Budapest Festival Orchestra, Deutsche Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Orchestre de Paris, London Symphony Orchestra, and Vienna Symphony. He has also established himself as a superb recitalist after his New York debut in 1988. He is a frequent performer at premier recital venues and festivals around the world, notably the Wigmore Hall, Lucerne and Salzburg Festivals, and the Wiener Festwochen.
