New Hope, PA – The New Hope Historical Society presents a night with world-renowned composer Daniel Adam Maltz. Daniel will perform an authentic Fortepiano Recital within the intimate setting of the Stephen Buck Theater on Sunday, April 16th at 3pm.
Debuting at age 22 Carnegie Hall (Weill), he performs 50 plus tour dates a year as a sought-after soloist, chamber musician, and clinician. Daniel studied historical performance at the Royal Academy of Music in London and the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Vienna.
Daniel refined his command of historical practices through private study with Andreas Staier and Ingomar Rainer and is devoted to performing on Viennese fortepianos — utilizing the vast range of tones and colors familiar to the composers. Daniel brings his expertise in the Viennese sound, culture, philosophies, and performance practices of the Classical era to his interpretations.
Daniel also enjoys the 18th-century practice of leading orchestras in concerto and symphony performances from the keyboard, acting not as a modern conductor, but as a leader from within the ensemble. He also hosts Classical Cake, the podcast about Viennese classical music and culture. Before switching to the fortepiano, Daniel studied privately with internationally-renowned pianists John O’Conor, Gil Sullivan, and Robert Lehrbaumer. Daniel is a dual citizen of the USA and Israel. He comes from a musical family — his mother is a cellist and his father, a composer, who taught him piano and composition starting at age four.
Daniel Adam Maltz is a fortepianist based in Vienna, Austria who specializes in the First Viennese School — Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert.
Haydn and Mozart’s piano works will be performed as they intended them to be heard — on a historic Viennese fortepiano in an intimate setting. During the Classical era in Vienna, composers expected their keyboard music to entertain relatively small audiences in smaller-scale spaces than today’s large concert halls. And, the era’s pianos (known as “fortepianos”) are very different from modern Steinways.
