Arts at the Walderhaus
Daniel Adam Maltz
Daniel Adam Maltz is a fortepianist based in Vienna, Austria. He specializes in the First Viennese School — Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert. He made his Carnegie Hall (Weill) debut at age 22 and has 50+ tour dates per 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. He refined his command of historical practices through private study with Andreas Staier and Ingomar Rainer.
Daniel is devoted to performing on Viennese fortepianos — utilizing the vast range of tones and colors familiar to the composers. He brings his expertise in the Viennese sound, culture, philosophies, and performance practices of the Classical era to his interpretations. He 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. Daniel hosts Classical Cake, the podcast about Viennese classical music and culture. Learn more about Maltz on his website: https://www.danieladammaltz.com/
