Andrei Pisarev: “His playing is remarkable for its composure and complete virtuoso command. The faultless proportions, the air of rapt simplicity, the perfect sense of balance and phrase were often breathtaking,” wrote The Pretoria News after Andrei Pisarev received the 1st Prize in the Unisa Transnet International Piano Competition and Special Prizes for the best performances of a classical sonata and a Mozart piano concerto in Pretoria in 1992.

Andrei Pisarev was born in the old Russian city of Rostov-on-the-Don the 6th of November, 1962. He began his musical education at the age of seven.
