Young Hungarian pianist Daniel Lebhardt has impressed audiences and critics alike with his thoughtful interpretations and outstanding virtuosity. Daniel won First Prize at the 2014 Young Concert Artists Auditions in Paris, and then won YCA’s International Auditions in New York, where he was also awarded the Paul A. Fish Memorial Prize and four concert prizes. Among his many other accolades, Daniel won First Prize at the Russian Music International Piano Competition in California, First Prize at the Citta di Gorizia International Piano Competition in Italy, First Prize at the Kosice International Piano Competition in Slovakia, and First Prize at the Carl Filtsch International Piano Competition in Romania. Most recently, he won the Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) 2015 Auditions in London.
Daniel mades his recital debuts in the Young Concert Artists Series at the Kennedy Center in February 2016 and in New York in the Rhoda Walker Teagle Concert on March 1. He also appeared in recitals for the Buffalo Chamber Music Society, Hayden’s Ferry Chamber Music Series, the Port Washington Library, the Levine School of Music, and the Paramount Theatre. In the UK, Danielhas appeared in recital at London’s Steinway Hall, the Colston Hall in Bristol, the Pounds Arts Centre in Wiltshire, the North Fylde Music Circle, the Darlington Piano Society, and as soloist with the Plymouth Symphony Orchestra. He has also performed at Germany’s Usedom Music Festival and given recitals at the Bela Bartok Memorial House in Budapest, at the Senate House in London, at the Musée du Louvre in Paris, and at various concert venues in Hungary, Austria and Japan. As a result of winning the Royal Academy of Music’s prestigious Patron’s Award, Daniel gave his Wigmore Hall recital debut in May 2015.
As a very active chamber musician, Daniel performed at the BBC Proms in a Composer Portrait of Olga Neuwirth, which was recorded and broadcast by BBC Radio 3 in 2012). He has also performed with Mark van de Wiel, principal clarinet of the Philharmonia Orchestra, in the Clarinet Sonatas by Brahms.
“Taking a daringly fast tempo, Mr. Lebhardt dispatched the music [Beethoven’s Sonata no 16 in G, op 31, no 1] with scintillating crispness and conveyed its brash humor. But the breathless energy of his account also teased out the sonata’s heedless daring. He revealed the slyness at work in the Adagio, with its almost mock-elegant trills and swirling passagework. The final Rondo was an impish, brilliant delight.“
