Andrew Blankfield (piano)
Andrew Blankfield is a pianist, conductor, singer and solicitor, although generally not in that order. For over 30 years he has combined a career as a City lawyer with a variety of musical pursuits, including a long period as musical director of the London Lawyers’ Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.
As a pianist, he plays in various chamber ensembles and grapples with ever more complicated accompaniments for his cello and violin playing daughters. His previous concerto performances include Schumann, Beethoven 1st (with Amadeus Chamber Orchestra), 2nd, 3rd and 5th and Mozart K.488 as well as the two piano concerto K.365.
