In 2014, at the age of 22, Daniel Lebhardt won 1st Prize at the Young Concert Artists auditions in Paris and New York. A year later he was selected by Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) in London and in 2016 won the Most Promising Pianist prize at the Sydney International Piano Competition.
Over the last year Daniel has given debut concerts at Merkin Concert Hall and Morgan Library in New York, the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Gardner Museum in Boston, the Usedomer Festival, Palais Lichtenau in Potsdam, Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Steirisches Kammermusikfestival. As a soloist he performed Rachmaninov’s Concerto No.2 with the Auburn and Dearborn Symphony Orchestras in Washington and Michigan. In 2015 he recorded music by Bartók for Decca and attended IMS Prussia Cove working with Ferenc Rados.
Engagements this season include recitals at the Louvre in Paris, Wigmore Hall, Liszt Museum in Budapest, the Oxford International and Nottingham International Piano Series. He makes his debut with the State Academic Symphony Orchestra at the White Nights Festival in St. Petersburg, and with the CBSO Youth Orchestra. Further afield he undertakes tours of China, Argentina Columbia and Chile. He continues to give recitals throughout the UK and returns to the US and Canada twice.
Born in Hungary, Daniel studied at the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest with István Gulyás and Gyöngyi Keveházi and at the Royal Academy of Music in London with Pascal Nemirovski. He has participated in masterclasses with Alfred Brendel, Leslie Howard, Natalia Trull, Maxim Vengerov and Mikhail Voskresensky.
International awards include 1st Prize at the 2009 Russian Music Competition in California, 2nd Prize at the 2011 Lagny-sur-Marne International Competition in France and 5th Prize at the 2013 China International Piano Competition.
As a chamber musician, Daniel regularly collaborates with violinist Benjamin Baker. He took part in the BBC Proms Composer Portrait of Olga Neuwirth broadcast by BBC Radio 3 in 2012 and has given recitals with clarinettist Mark van der Wiel (principal of Philharmonia Orchestra).
At the YCA Auditions Daniel was also awarded the Paul A. Fish Memorial Prize and four concert prizes: the Usedom Music Festival Prize, the Buffalo Chamber Music Society Prize, the Hayden’s Ferry Chamber Music Series Prize, and the Paramount Theatre Prize.
