Andreea Stoica’s journey in music began at the age of five when her father gave her the first piano lessons. Her natural gift was instantly obvious, and in the age of six she started her education at George Enescu Conservatory of Music (Lyceum) in Bucharest. It didn’t take long since she began appearing as a performer and at the age of 12 came the debut with Mozart’s piano concertos with Bucharest Philharmonic Orchestra. Many other recitals and concert tours followed before she came back to study in Bucharest Music University that she graduated from in 1999 and The Conservatorium van Amsterdam where she finished her studies in 2006.
She became a laureate of several prestigious competitions, her effortless power, speed and precision, combined with emotional depth and lyricism have earned her a quick acclaim and already while studying she started an intensive touring activity all throught Europe, in both solo programs and performances with orchestras. Among others she performed in Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, France, Swiss, Poland, Romania, Israel, Greece, Bulgaria, and the USA, inspiring the audience in many of the important concert halls like Concertgebouw Amsterdam, De Doelen Rotterdam, Gewandhaus Leipzig, Konzerthaus Berlin, Tonhalle Düsseldorf, Teatro Regio di Torino, Carnegy Hall New York, Musikverein Wien and many others. She is touring all through Europe with an original program combining most popular musical compositions of the past with rare jewels of the modern classics.

„Stoica’s performance was characterized by generosity of spirit, to say nothing of knockout virtuosity. Her playing was at the same time extrovert, lyrical, and rhythmically alive.“ (Fanfare Magazine, USA)
