David Fung

Described as “stylish and articulate” in the New York Times and having “superstar qualities” by Le Libre, pianist David Fung is widely recognized for performances that are elegant and refined, yet intensely poetic and uncommonly expressive. Mr. Fung appears regularly with the world’s premier ensembles including the Cleveland Orchestra, Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, Israel Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, National Orchestra of Belgium, and with the major orchestras in Australia, including the Melbourne, Queensland, and Sydney Symphony Orchestras. In July 2016, Mr. Fung’s highly acclaimed debut with the Cleveland Orchestra at the Blossom Music Festival was “everything you could wish for” (Cleveland Classical). In the following week, he performed Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini at the Beijing National Stadium for their Olympic Summer Festival. Other highlights of the season include performances at Caramoor, Tippet Rise Art Center, Bravo! Niagara Festival of the Arts, and Schloss Elmau, as well as his New York recital debut presented by Lincoln Center’s Great Performers. In 2017-18, he has solo recital debuts at the Brussels Piano Festival and the Kennedy Center, presented by Washington Performing Arts, and performances with Orpheus, the Albany Symphony, the Marin Symphony, the Sun Valley Summer Symphony, and the Göttingen Symphony Orchestra. He performs for the first time at the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival, and returns to Ravinia Festival and Lincoln Center’s Great Performers this season. As a recitalist and chamber musician, Mr. Fung is a frequent guest artist at prestigious festivals and venues worldwide. Festival highlights include performances at the Aspen Music Festival, Blossom Music Festival, Edinburgh International Festival, Hong Kong Arts Festival, and the Ravinia Festival. Mr. Fung garnered international attention as a winner in two of the "top five" international piano competitions (the Queen Elisabeth International Music Competition in Brussels and the Arthur Rubinstein Piano International Masters Competition in Tel Aviv). Mr. Fung is the first piano graduate of the Colburn Conservatory in Los Angeles and is a Steinway Artist.
