concert paraphrase on waltz motifs from Johann Strauss’s Die Fledermaus et al.
“Music becomes an experience with Daniel Ciobanu,” Deutschlandfunk Radio declared about the pianist’s debut CD, which was released in the fall of 2020. This keyboard wizard possesses an “uncompromising desire to tell stories” and on top of that has “the technical ability” to make it happen: in short, he is “a clever and extremely emotional artist.” The native Romanian, who cites Vladimir Horowitz, Arthur Rubinstein, and Arcadi Volodos as role models, appeared on Lang Lang’s show 100 Pianos as early as 2011, when he was 19 years old. In 2017 he won the silver medal and the audience prize at the Rubinstein Competition in Tel Aviv, and since then he has performed with such renowned partners as the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the Israel and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras, the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, and the Enescu Philharmonic Orchestra, which appointed him artist-in-residence. In his Lucerne debut, Ciobanu will span a wide range, from the nocturne to such bubbly pieces as the closing paraphrase on waltzes from Die Fledermaus.
