Cheboygan Opera House Welcomes Concert Pianist Daniel Hsu November 6

Cheboygan, Michigan — Chamberfest, a concert series presented by the Cheboygan Area Arts Council, welcomes 2017 Cliburn Bronze Medalist Danial Hsu to the Cheboygan Opera House on Saturday, November 6, at 7:30.  He will present a recital with works by Schumann, Beethoven and Liszt.

Daniel Hsu, a San Francisco native, won the bronze medal and prizes for best performance of both commissioned work and chamber music at the 2017 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. He is also a 2016 Gilmore Young Artist, a first prize winner of the 2015 CAG Victor Elmaleh Competition, and bronze medalist of the 2015 Hamamatsu International Piano Competition.

Just 24 years old now, Hsu began taking piano lessons at age 6. His concerto debut with the Fremont Symphony Orchestra was at age 8; his recital debut at the Steinway Society of the Bay Area was at age 9, before being accepted into the Curtis Institute of Music at the age of 10, along with his two older siblings.

Since graduation from Curtis in 2019, Daniel Hsu has toured across Europe, Asia, and North America , with notable performances with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Carnegie Hall as part of the CAG Winners Series at Weill Recital Hall, NEC Jordan Hall, Taipei Symphony, and Gilmore Rising Stars Series, among  others.

Said to be a sensitive and keen collaborator, Daniel has performed with the Tokyo, Taipei, North Carolina, Grand Rapids, Anchorage, New Haven, and Fort Worth Symphony Orchestras. He has performed with conductors Leonard Slatkin, Nicholas McGegan, Cristian Măcelaru, Ruth Reinhardt, Hannu Lintu, Marcelo Lehninger, Eugene Tzigane, and Stilian Kirov. Equally at home in a chamber setting, Daniel frequently performs with the Verona Quartet and in duo piano with his brother, Andrew.

Decca Gold released Daniel’s first album featuring live recordings from the Cliburn Competition of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition and Beethoven’s Piano Sonata, op. 110, as well as his award-winning performance of Marc-André Hamelin’s Toccata on “L’homme armé.” He has also been featured in interviews and performances for WQXR, APM’s Performance Today, and Colorado Public Radio, and was profiled as one to watch by International Piano magazine.

“We are thrilled to have Daniel Hsu perform in Cheboygan,” said Chamberfest’s Bruce Gauthier. “Surrounding this concert, Hsu performs in Texas, Oregon, Maine, and California.”
