Daniel Le

Hailed by the New York Concert Review as a “brilliant young pianist,” Australian pianist Daniel Le has enjoyed an international career spanning four continents. A semi-finalist at the 2017  Naumburg International Award, Daniel has made his mark to sold out concerts in major venues  from New York to Melbourne. Beginning his piano studies at the age of three, Daniel received a music scholarship to the Melbourne Grammar School at the age of eleven. By fourteen, he attended the Australian National Academy of Music Young Academy Program and gave his first live radio performances on the Australian Broadcasting Company and 3MBS. After Daniel’s debut with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra in 2015, he was immediately re-engaged for two consecutive seasons. In 2019, he made his debut with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, under conductor Benjamin Northey.
Competition successes include prizes in the Lev Vlassenko Piano Competition, Australian National Piano Award, and Kerikeri International Piano Competition. He was the winner of the Manhattan School of Music Concerto Competition and performed Mozart’s E-flat major Concerto No.22 K.482. Daniel is also an active chamber musician and recently won the Fuchs Chamber Music Competition with his duo. He has collaborated with world-class string quartets, as well as members of the prestigious Chamber Music Society of the Lincoln Center in New York.
Currently based in New York City, Daniel is pursuing his Doctor of Piano Performance degree at the Manhattan School of Music as the Ruby Fae Ellenger Overstreet Scholar. Primary teachers have included Andre-Michel Schub, Thomas Hecht, Melvin Chen, Stephen McIntyre, and Rita Reichman.
