Daniel Adam Maltz offers a rare experience — a concert as Mozart and Beethoven intended their music to be heard — on an 18th-century Viennese fortepiano, an early piano drastically different from modern pianos.
Meet the Artist! A reception will be held on our patio immediately following the performance.
Daniel Adam Maltz, Fortepianist
"The recital was a triumph... It was a privilege to hear an artist of this caliber." — MUSIC CRITIC LENNY CAVALLARO
"Maltz is a marvelous and sincere artist... He is careful and deliberate, yet his performance also projects the dramatic intent, musical personality, warmth, and even the humor we find in the scores." — MARBLEHEAD CURRENT
Daniel Adam Maltz is a fortepianist based in Vienna, Austria.
What is a Fortepiano?
He has 50+ tour dates worldwide per year and specializes in Wiener Klassik (Viennese Classicism) — especially the works of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven — performed on the Viennese fortepianos of their time.
Critics praise Daniel’s performances for their "broad warmth" with "lavish but tasteful" playing (Classical Sonoma) as well as his "very sensitive phrasing" with "marvelous dynamic contrasts… [that] enabled him to shape his lines beautifully" (Marblehead Current).
He debuted at Carnegie Hall (Weill) at age 22 and is a sought-after soloist, Lieder accompanist, and clinician.
Daniel also hosts Classical Cake, the podcast about Viennese classical music and culture.
Daniel studied fortepiano 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.

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, taught him piano and composition starting at age four.
