Hailed by the New York Concert Review as a “brilliant young pianist,” Australian pianist Daniel Le has enjoyed an international career spanning four continents. After Daniel’s debut with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra in 2015, he was immediately re-engaged for two consecutive seasons under the baton of Benjamin Northey. In 2019, he made his debut with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. Other performances have brought Daniel to venues including Lincoln Center in New York, Melbourne Recital Center, Queensland Performing Arts Theatre, and Lyric Theatre in Australia, Waseda University in Japan, and Engadin Summer Piano Academy in Switzerland.
Competition successes include prizes in the Lev Vlassenko Piano Competition, Australian National Piano Award, and Kerikeri International Piano Competition. Recently he was the winner of the Manhattan School of Music concerto competition and performed Mozart’s E-flat major Concerto No.22 K.482 with the orchestra.
An active chamber musician, he has collaborated with members of the Chamber Music Society at the Lincoln Center. Festival appearances include Norfolk Chamber Music Festival and Bowdoin International Music Festival, where he worked with renowned musicians from the Emerson, Brentano, Shanghai and Miro String Quartets.
Currently based in New York City, Daniel is pursuing his Doctor of Piano Performance degree at the Manhattan School of Music as the Ruby Fae Ellenger Overstreet Scholar. His passion for teaching has been pronounced in his role as a Steinway Education Partner. In 2020, he launched his own concert series “Sound Escapes” during the Covid-19 pandemic which aimed to provide a multi-dimensional concert experience.
