Kassab Recital Hall, Hyman Fine Arts Center

Daniel Adam Maltz (b. 1994) is a concert pianist based in Vienna, Austria. Born in Lexington, South Carolina, he is a citizen of both Israel and the United States.

Daniel regularly appears in concert throughout the US, Europe, and Australia. He will make his Carnegie Hall debut in October 2016.

After graduating from the prestigious South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities, Daniel explored his love of the First Viennese School through private study with internationally-renowned teachers, including: Robert Lehrbaumer in Vienna, Mozart specialist Gil Sullivan in Australia, and Beethoven authority John O’Conor in the United States.

Daniel’s repertoire demonstrates a deep appreciation of the Romantic era as well, especially the works of Schubert, Chopin, and Schumann.

He is also a champion of works by his father, composer Richard Maltz, and is scheduled to premier Richard’s first piano concerto in 2017.

Daniel hails from a musical family. His mother is a cellist and his father taught him both piano and composition starting at age four. Daniel made his solo orchestral debut at age 12, gave his first full-length solo recital at age 15, and performed his first European concerts at age 16.

He is passionate about music as a live art. By focusing solely on live performances, he hopes to counter digital age distractions by creating an environment that is spontaneous and meaningful; providing a much-needed respite from the noise of our busy digital lives.

Fully-devoted to putting forth genuine and personal interpretations of everything he plays, Daniel’s sentimentality, diverse tonal pallet, and ability to communicate profound musical ideas in a pure way form the foundation of his unique and honest artistry.
