Biography

David has had a long career as solo performer, chamber musician, accompanist, concerto soloist and performer of new music, with a wide repertoire ranging from critically acclaimed performances of Bach's Goldberg Variations to the only NZ performance of Stockhausen's Kontakte. He studied with Janetta McStay, Aloys Kontarsky, Wilhelm Hecker, and members of the Amadeus Quartet.

 

After many years of private teaching, David joined the School of Music as an Artist-Teacher. Aside from all the standard repertoire he has a special interest in exploring the ways in which new knowledge about historical performance practice can influence a modern pianist's playing of baroque and classical music.
