The Young Concert Artists Series presents the New York debut of 23-year-old Hungarian pianist Daniel Lebhardt on Tuesday, March 1. He performs a program including the premiere of a work by new YCA Composer-in-Residence, Tonia Ko. In Europe, Mr. Lebhardt has played at the Musée du Louvre in Paris, at the Palace of Arts and Bela Bartok Memorial House in Budapest, and at the Hungarian Cultural Institute in Vienna. In Tokyo, he has performed at the Goethe Institute, the Hungarian Embassy, the Canadian Embassy, Khokushikan University, and at the Kume Museum of Art, and in Ogawa Town Hall and Chichibu Concert Hall. Last season, he gave his Wigmore Hall recital debut, sponsored by the Royal Academy of Music’s Patron’s Award. At the 2012 BBC Proms, he performed chamber music in the “Composer Portrait of Olga Neuwirth,” which was broadcast by BBC Radio 3. Recently, he won a place at YCA’s sister organization, Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT), in London. Daniel Lebhardt studies at the Royal Academy of Music in London, in the studio of Pascal Nemirovski.
Composer Tonia Ko, YCA’s 2015-2017 Composer-in-Residence, received a Charles Ives Scholarship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, a 2015 BMI Student Composer Award, a Copland House residency award, and a residency at Volti’s Choral Arts Lab in San Francisco, which includes a commission. Ms. Ko’s Plush Earth in Four Pieces for violin and piano won the 2014 Thailand International Composers Competition. Her music has been played at many festivals by numerous ensembles. She is currently a Sage Fellow and doctoral student at Cornell University with Steven Stucky and Kevin Ernste.
