In September 1998 by a unanimous verdict Andrew won first prize in 'The San Francisco International Piano Concerto Competition' confirming his emergence in recent years as one of the busiest and most imaginative pianists of his generation.
Andrew has appeared at many of the major venues and festivals both in the UK and abroad. His many appearances at the South Bank Centre in London have included a concert for the Park Lane Group in which he gave the world premiere of "..in real time" pieces 2, 3 and 4 by Alexander Goehr, a concert of the complete piano music of Constant Lambert and most recently a concert sponsored by the Kirckman Society of which Michael Church wrote in the Independent that "recitals are rarely so riveting."
In the field of contemporary music Andrew is much in demand and has worked with 'Composers' Ensemble', 'Capricorn' 'Icebreaker' and 'Eos'. He has worked with the leading composers of today including Louis Andriessen, Poul Ruders, John Woolrich, Sir Harrison Birtwistle, Edwin Roxburgh, Jonathan Harvey and Alexander Goehr and has given several first performances.
Andrew has given many broadcasts on BBC Radio 3, including solo piano music by Szymanowski. Couperin, Martinu, and Tchaikovsky. He also gave the first broadcast performance of Gerald Barry's piano quartet. Andrew has also given solo recitals on Classic FM , German Radio and earlier this year a recital of contemporary Irish music for BBC Radio Ulster.
