Andriy Dragan was recognised early on by teachers and the press as an exceptional talent. Since his birth, he has lived from music and for music. Numerous prizes bear witness to his artistic ability.
Among others, Andriy Dragan was awarded the Prix Credit Suisse Jeunes Solistes and the 1st Prize and Prix Collard of the Kiefer-Hablitzel Foundation.
Born into a Ukrainian family of musicians, Andriy Dragan began playing the piano at the age of four. He was encouraged by his parents and trained at a young age by Lidia Krych in his home town of Lviv Krych. At the age of twelve, he was already allowed to perform as a soloist in Franz Xaver Mozart's Piano Concerto under the direction of Gunhard Mattes in his home country and in Switzerland. Andriy Dragan is still occupied with the still little-known music of W.A. Mozart's son today - his album "Franz Xaver Mozart - Variations" was released in the summer of 2021.
Andriy Dragan studied at the Basel Music Academy with Adrian Oetiker. Still living in Basel today, he has also been a Swiss citizen since 2020.
Andriy Dragan is an enormously committed and virtuoso artist who likes to shroud his talent in modesty - and therefore prefers to let his playing speak for itself.
