He completed his Bachelor’s and Master’s at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in the class of Aaron Shorr and Petras Geniusas.
Daniel had his orchestral debut at the age of 13, performing the Kabalevsky Piano Concerto No 3 with the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba. Since then he has frequently performed with different orchestras in Cuba and Portugal. He also had the chance to perform in the Gulbenkian Foundation – the most prestigious Concert Hall in Portugal – where he played Beethoven’s Concerto No 5 (Emperor) with the Gulbenkian Orchestra as a reward for his 1st prize in the ‘Jovens Musicos’ Piano Competition. Also, he won the Concerto Competition Prize at the Royal Conservatoire which also allowed him to play with the RCS Orchestra.
He graduated from the Escola Professional de Musica de Espinho, Portugal in 2014 with the maximum grade and was invited to perform with the ‘Orquestra Classica de Espinho’ as a reward. In 2013 he was also invited by the world-renowned professor Solomon Mikowsky, professor at the Manhattan School of Music, to perform in the Piano Festival he annually organizes in Havana.
In 2017 he was invited to be soloist with the Edinburgh Youth Orchestra under the baton of Sian Edwards and in 2018 he was awarded the special prize ‘Prix Region Île-de-France’ at the Piano Campus International Piano Competition.
