    Daniel Ciobanu, who was 19 at the time, first stepped into the limelight when the Chinese grandmaster Lang Lang invited him to perform as part of his show “100 Pianos” at London’s Royal Festival Hall in 2011. The Romanian-born pianist was also given the opportunity to perform as the soloist in Constantin Silvestri’s Bacchanale. Ciobanu has long since exceeded the expectations he aroused back then. He has won prizes in numerous competitions, including the 2017 Arthur Rubinstein Competition in Tel Aviv, where he also received the audience award. He has appeared at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, the Salle Cortot in Paris, the Gasteig in Munich, and the National Concert Hall in Taipei. And he has performed with such renowned partners as the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. For his Lucerne debut, Ciobanu will span a wide emotional arc, from the nocturne to the fizzy champagne mood of the paraphrase from Die Fledermaus with which he will close the recital.
