Audiences worldwide, across five continents - North America, Europe, Asia, South America and Africa - recognize the pianism of Daniel Pollack for its signature colors in sound, coupled with over-the-edge thrilling virtuosity, giving his performances an electrifying element that catches the imagination of concert goers. Worldwide critics speak about "his astonishing pianism", Washington Post, and "his dramatic tension, poignant lyricism," Diapason Magazine, Paris, France and "his torrents of sound that turned feathery flurries of delicate sounds," Los Angeles Times.
Pollack was recently featured in a profile by the New York Times headlined "Piano Man, Winning Russian Hearts and Minds" in which it was quoted by a recording executive "he is now a legend in Russia." Another profile featured in the International Herald Tribune, headlined, "A Musical 'love affair' with Russia.
Highlights from appearances as soloist with orchestras worldwide include with conductor Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra in St. Petersburg, Russia, as part of the White Nights Festival; with conductor Yuri Simonov and the Moscow State Philharmonic; as well as soloist with London's Royal Philharmonic, Seoul Philharmonic, Korea, Hong Kong Philharmonic, National Symphony Orchestra of Bogota, Colombia, among others. In the U.S. concert appearances include, as soloist with the New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Baltimore Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, among numerous others.
Pollack has performed solo recitals in the major music centers of the world including London's Royal Festival Hall, Vienna's Musikverein, Amsterdam's Concertgebouw, Buenos Aires' Teatro Colon, Seoul's Arts Center, Tel Aviv's University Concert Series, Moscow's Conservatory Great Hall, New York's Carnegie Hall, Chicago's Orchestra Hall, Los Angeles' Music Center.
Pollack is much in demand on international competition juries. He has participated several times on the International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow as well as on the Queen Elizabeth International Piano Competition in Brussels; Vladimir Horowitz, Kiev, Ukraine; Leeds, England; Maria Callas, Athens, Greece; Jose Iturbi, Los Angeles, California; Hamamatsu and Sonoda Competitions in Japan; UNISA in Pretoria, South Africa; Anton Rubinstein, Dresden, Germany; Prokofiev, St. Petersburg, Russia; and the Rachmaninoff in Moscow, among others.
His most recent CD, entitled "COLORS", with major works from Schumann and Liszt has received international critical acclaim "the great Schumann Fantasy is played with sweep and passion (Pollack) plays all three sections with all the emotion, imagination and color necessary to make it sound like a disciplined yet grand improvisation," and "Liszt's two blockbusters (the Mephisto Waltz, Funerailles) add additional incentives to acquire this outstanding recording," wrote Alan Becker, American Record.
Among other international releases are Pollack's Grammy-nominated CD for Naxos, the complete solo piano works of Samuel Barber, which was heralded as "prodigious pianism of fiery energy, dynamic articulation and elan," Repertoire Magazine, Paris, France. Other CDs include an all-Chopin recital recorded in the Great Hall of the Philharmonic in St. Petersburg, Russia, released by Sony as well as two CDs of popular short romantic works for Four Winds.
Pollack first garnered the music world's attention when he became a prizewinner in the International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow. Following, he concertized throughout the former Soviet Union and became the first American to record there for the Melodya label, records that sold in the millions throughout the former Soviet Union over several decades and continue to be on the market in Russia today. Many of these recordings were re-issued worldwide under several different labels, most recently on Cambria, distributed worldwide, entitled, "The Legendary Moscow Recitals" recordings of Pollack's early years.
Pollack has held several visiting artist faculty positions including The Juilliard School, Columbia University and Yale's School of Music. Pollack is currently on the faculty at the Thornton School of Music, of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles.
Pollack began his studies at the age of four with the renowned prodigy teacher Mme. Ethel Leginska and made his debut with the New York Philharmonic at the age of nine, performing the Chopin Piano Concerto No. 1. He is a graduate of the Juilliard School from the class of the legendary Rosina Lhevinne, herself a graduate of the Moscow Conservatory. Pollack continued his graduate studies at the Hochschule fur Musik in Vienna under a Fulbright scholarship with Bruno Seidlhofer, at the Academia Chigiana in Siena, Italy with Guido Agosti and was awarded a Prix de Positano, Italy for a special Beethoven Master Class with the late Wilhelm Kempff.
Daniel Pollack's cutting edge web site www.danielpollack.com, in which he can be seen and heard in a live concert from Moscow's Great Hall, has been a favorite of classical musicians worldwide, achieving a record number of visitors annually and winning the prestigious Informative Music Site Award.
