New York-based Pianist
Fast-rising pianist David Kaplan has been praised for his “grace and fire” by The Boston Globe, and for “striking imagination and creativity” by The New York Times. He has appeared as a guest soloist of the famed Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and performed at Miami’s Arscht Center with Itzhak Perlman. An active candidate for the Doctorate of Musical Arts at Yale, David has appeared at the Seattle Chamber Music Festival, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Chamber Music Northwest, Barge Music, and the Canadian festivals of Banff and Orford.
David has commissioned short pieces to embed within Schumann’s 18 Davidsbündlertänze from 17 extraordinary composers who include Augusta Reed Thomas, Andrew Norman, Gabriel Kahane, and Martin Bresnick. This is the project’s West Coast premiere.
