Andreas Vierziger approaches classical music from a personal angle re-thinking established constructs and shaping them in a contemporary way. His work focusses primarily on artistic content and concepts, strategy and on their neglected contact points. In addition to his work and education on the artistic side, he holds a license for business consulting.
His clients, projects and collaborators range from classical music festivals, presenters and record labels to institutions in the fields of education, music, the arts and other genres and disciplines.
As a former artist manager at Buhl Artists Management, Andreas Vierziger worked for a range of high-profile classical music artists (including a number of Grammy winners) and regularly collaborated with leading orchestras, festivals and concert presenters across Europe and beyond. Between 2014 and 2016 he served on the board of directors of the Camerata Salzburg.
Born in Salzburg, Andreas studied Theatre, Film and Media Studies as well as Musicology and Arts Management at the University of Vienna. He attended programs at the Fudan University in Shanghai, the Beijing University and the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. He was selected as Young Cultural Innovator Fellow of the Salzburg Global Seminar and as a Fellow of the International Society for the Performing Arts in New York.
He has been a jury member at more than 20 international music competitions including the International Johannes Brahms Competition/Austria, Fulbright Concerto Competition/USA, New York Concert Artist Auditions, Karol Szymanowski International Music Competition/Poland and several others.
On the theoretical side, Andreas focuses on alternative performance models in classical music, on music management and on collaborations between music and other disciplines.
He holds a lecturing position at the University for Music and Performing Arts Vienna (Cultural Management Postgraduate Program) and he has lectured at institutions such as Mozarteum University Salzburg, Sibelius Academy Helsinki, Liszt Academy of Music Budapest, Zurich University for the Arts, Tokyo College of Music, Tokyo University for the Arts, Palais des Beaux-Arts/BOZAR Brussels, Sciences Po Paris and at Paris-Sorbonne.
