Daniel Tong was born in Cornwall and studied in London. His musical life is spent performing as soloist and chamber musician, writing and teaching. After his first solo CD of works by Schubert, Gramophone magazine described him as “an extraordinarily sympathetic Schubertian.” He has recently released the Beethoven Op.10 Piano Sonatas on Resonus Classics, recorded on a copy of an 1805 fortepiano. He has given recent recitals at St George’s Bristol, Caird Hall, Dundee and St John’s Smith Square as well as concertos at Kings Place and St Martin-in-the-Fields.
Daniel’s London Bridge Trio have been regular visitors to London’s Wigmore Hall and BBC Radio 3 for twenty years, with a substantial discography that includes a shortlisting for the Gramophone Chamber Music Award (Frank Bridge Chamber Works Vol. II on Dutton). Each year Daniel plays with an array of wonderful individual artists, often at his own chamber festival: founded in 1999, the Wye Valley Chamber Music Festival attracts many renowned chamber musicians to spend ten days making music in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Daniel is Head of Piano in Chamber Music at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
