About Andrew Rangell

Andrew Rangell is a nationally acclaimed pianist and lecturer, winner of an Avery Fisher career grant and recipient of a doctoral degree from the Juilliard School. Now residing in Boston, Mr. Rangell was for eight years a piano professor and resident artist at Dartmouth College.

Having performed throughout New England for several decades, he is perhaps best known here for two separate highly praised Boston traversals of the complete Beethoven Sonata cycle at Sanders Theatre in Cambridge and Jordan Hall in Boston in 1986-89. During this period Mr. Rangell performed the cycle in New York City, Cleveland, Denver, Rochester, Hanover, NH and other cities.

As a musician, Andrew Rangell has been much appreciated for the unusual breadth and depth of his repertoire, as well as the singularity and intensity of his interpretations— attributes much in evidence throughout a far-ranging discography of twenty-seven recordings on the Dorian, Bridge and Steinway labels.

In 2012 Steinway and Sons released a three-disc set of his interpretations of Beethoven’s final five Sonatas, the Diabelli Variations and Bagatelles op. 126, and (separately) Bach’s “The Art of Fugue”. Mr. Rangell’s more recent releases include a three-disc set of Bach masterworks (the Goldberg Variations and the six Partitas) as well as “A Folk Song Runs Through It” featuring music of Janacek, Bartok and Kodaly.

Mr. Rangell’s latest release, also on the Steinway label, is “A Chopin Recital.”
