About Daniel

Pianist Daniel Lebhardt has been described by the New York Times as playing with ‘…power, poetry and formidable technique’.

A regular guest of Wigmore Hall, Daniel makes multiple appearances this season including a performance of the Bartok Quintet with Castalian Quartet and a solo recital featuring the music of Brahms, Scriabin, Bartok & Ligeti, which also comprises his Harrogate International Festival debut programme. Daniel will return to Kiev for a recital featuring the music of Liszt.

Other recent recital highlights include debuts at Luxembourg Philharmonie, as well as the Aldeburgh, Heidelberger-Frühling, Tallinn and Lucerne international festivals. He has given recitals at St. David’s Hall in Cardiff, Bath International Festival and L’Eglise Saint Germain in Paris as part of the Week-end à l’Est Festival.

Equally at home in concert, Daniel returns to Royal Philharmonic Orchestra next season for Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 5. He recently returned to Konzerthausorchester Berlin for Liszt’s Totentanz and made his debut with Bilkent Symphony Orchestra performing Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1.

Other recent performances include Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 5 with Hallé Orchestra, Shostakovich Piano Concerto No. 2 with Venice Symphony, Florida and Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 3. National Philharmonic of Ukraine.

Daniel has performed widely in the US, giving recitals at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Gardner Museum in Boston, Morgan Library and Merkin Concert Hall in New York and in Florida, Seattle, Arizona and Pittsburgh. Concerto highlights include performances of Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Auburn and Dearborn Symphony Orchestras in Washington and Michigan.

  • Daniel Lebhardt’s compelling account of Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ with the Hallé in Blackburn

    Mar 2020
    • Lebhardt was plainly unfazed by the demands of this courageous and magnificent score. Throughout this frequently encountered work I relished the soloist’s unerringly stylish and frequently ebullient playing in a bold performance that abounded with fresh ideas. With a significant sense of purpose this compelling account from Lebhardt displayed unquenchable verve in the outer movements drawing the listener into the affecting Adagio with a lovely affecting tone and impressive degree of concentration.
