Armands Abols is a Latvian pianist.
In 1992 Abols won at 18 Barcelona's Maria Canals, the dean of Spanish piano competitions. Three years later he took part at the XIII Paloma O'Shea Competition; he made it to the finals, ranking along the rest of the finalists second to Enrico Pompili - the Grand Prize was declared void, a decision Abols criticised.
In 1993 he began a concert career, regularly performing through South America. In the mid-90s he settled in Chile. Since 2003 he holds a professorship at the Southern University of Chile's Conservatory.
