He studied under Ani-Marie Paladi at the Josef Sava Music School in Bucharest and Professor Jens Peter Maintz at the Universität der Künste, Berlin. In 2013 he won First Prize at the Arum Khachaturian International Competition; in 2014 Second Prize and Special Prize for Interpretation at the ARD Music Competition; in 2015 he gained international recognition as winner of First Prize at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Andrei is a scholarship recipient of the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben.
