Hailed by Arts Review for his “show stopping virtuoso piano rendering,” Australian pianist Daniel Tang Le has enjoyed an international career spanning four continents. 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. Other performances have brought Daniel to venues including Lincoln Center in New York, Melbourne Recital Center, Queensland Performing Arts Theatre, and Lyric Theatre in Australia, Waseda University in Japan, and Engadin Summer Piano Academy in Switzerland. Competition successes include prizes in the Lev Vlassenko Piano Competition, Australian National Piano Award, and Kerikeri International Piano Competition.

Daniel has had the opportunity to work with such artists as Ann Schein, Bernd Goetzke, Boris Berman, Peter Frankl Christopher Elton, William Wolfram, Gabor Takacs-Nagy, Jan Jiracek von Arnim, Mikhail Rudy, Martin Roscoe and Melvyn Tan.

Daniel is also an active chamber musician and recently won the Fuchs Chamber Music Competition with his duo. He has performed at the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, Bowdoin International Music Festival and has worked with renowned musicians from the Emerson and Brentano and Miro String Quartets. He was also featured in multiple performances as a guest artist in the 2016 "Strictly Gershwin" season with conductor Gareth Valentine and the Queensland Ballet performing Rhapsody in Blue. 

Currently based in New York City, Daniel is pursuing his Master’s degree at the Manhattan School of Music as the Ruby Fae Ellenger Overstreet Scholar. Previously, he received his Bachelor’s degree from Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, where he was the two-time recipient of the Stephen Baxter Memorial Scholarship. Primary teachers have included Andre-Michel Schub, Thomas Hecht, Stephen McIntyre, and Rita Reichman.

Recently, Daniel was one of 10 semi-finalists in the prestigious 2017 Naumburg International Piano Award.
