Since making his concerto debut aged fifteen Andrew has appeared with conductors such as Sir Roger Norrington, Kent Nagano, Stanislaw Skrowachewski, Raymond Leppard, John Lubbock, Jean-Jacques Kanteroff, Darrell Davison and John Wilson, performing a broad range of well known and less familiar repertoire.
In 1999 Andrew was appointed first violinist of the internationally acclaimed Brodsky Quartet. A busy schedule saw the quartet perform and broadcast in their unique style all over the world. Andrew recorded more than fifteen CDs with the quartet, many of which received industry awards such as "Diapason d'or" and "Choc du Monde".
Andrew also enjoys frequent invitations to guest lead major symphony orchestras including the London Symphony, the Royal Philharmonic and the Philharmonia orchestras and in July this year took up his new post as leader of the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
In 2004 Andrew received an honorary Doctorate from the University of Kent for his services to music.
Andrew plays on a violin made for him in 2001 by the American luthier Sam Zygmuntowicz.
