Andor Schmidt

Andor Schmidt is EventDoc, PianoDoc and CharityDoc


Dear colleague Ellenberger,

it is amazing how my modest musical activities are getting known. I play the piano from age 7 on though non-professional but for fun. In the last years I did not really have enough time to practise….
5 years ago I have added a little concert hall to my house about 50 sq meters up to 60 seats with a new Steinway D concert grand and thus fulfilled a dream. In this private setting I manage 6 to 8 house recitals per year, mainly for piano solo. For this purpose I have founded the Andor Schmidt foundation for promotion of young musicians” since I have no commercial interests.
I am recruiting my young pianists are mostly coming from the class of Lev Natochenny (Mani Ejiri, Evgenia Rubinova, Guoda Gedvilaite and others) from the Frankfurt music academy. We also have chamber music events with singing as well as Jazz recitals (Adomas Rekasius, Maggy Scott and others). I am sorry not to have a web page yet to give information. So far we have managed 36 concerts, and I hope for your interest to get our e-mail newsletter. Would be nice to find more interested listeners to our concerts via your web page!

With kind regards
Andor Schmidt
