About this Artist
Andrew Stock (b. 1994) is a composer and violist. His recent music displays minimalist influence (largely via a specific attention to process) along with outgrowths of an artistic engagement with improvisers, experimental musicians, and specialist performers of contemporary music. His work has been performed and commissioned by soloists and groups including the Cleveland Chamber Symphony, members of the St. Louis Symphony, cellist Sharon Robinson and violinist Jinjoo Cho. As a performer, Andrew continually seeks out new music and collaborations in addition to playing the core repertoire—to that end, he founded the chamber collective UNION with freelance performers in Northeastern Ohio in 2014 as a vehicle for programming the works of modern and contemporary composers.
Andrew currently studies at the Cleveland Institute of Music with Jeffrey Irvine and Keith Fitch. Other guidance has come from a wide range of performers and composers including Garth Knox, Josh Levine, Ryan Wigglesworth, Chen Yi, Michael Finnissy, and Tatsuya Nakatani.
