...Mr. Maltz was at his very best; he seemed unified with the music, the composer, himself, and the instrument.
— The New York Concert Review

Daniel Adam Maltz (b. 1994) is a concert pianist based in Vienna, Austria. Born in South Carolina, he is a citizen of both Israel and the United States.

Daniel regularly appears in concert throughout the US, Europe, and Australia. He made his Carnegie Hall debut in October 2016.

Daniel is passionate about music as a live art. By focusing solely on live performances, he hopes to counter digital distractions by creating an environment that is spontaneous and meaningful; providing a much-needed respite from the noise of our busy lives.

Through his performances, he is capable to serve art and to share with his audience the experience [of] celebrating in a ‘temple of music.’
— Robert Lehrbaumer

Daniel deepened his love of Viennese classicism – Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert – through private study with internationally-renowned teachers, including: Robert Lehrbaumer in Vienna, Mozart specialist Gil Sullivan in Australia, and Beethoven authority John O’Conor in the United States.

He is also a champion of works by his father, composer Richard Maltz, and premiered Richard’s first piano concerto in February 2018. 

Daniel hails from a musical family. His mother is a cellist and his father taught him both piano and composition starting at age four. He made his solo orchestral debut at age 12 and gave his first full-length solo recital at age 15 – all before graduating from the prestigious South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities.

Living in Vienna, Daniel attempts to satisfy his unquenchable thirst for music by attending many live performances each week – especially opera.
