Young Australian pianist David Soo is at the start of what promises to be a brilliant international career, having completed an Artist Diploma at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama where he has studied with Joan Havill.

His many awards and prizes include winning the Melbourne Recital Centre’s Elizabeth Murdoch Prize, the City of Sydney Allison/Henderson Piano Scholarship, the Oxford Music Festival’s Professional Recital Prize, the Emmanuel Trophy Piano Competition, the Guildhall Glass-Sellers’ Beethoven Prize and the Australian Music Foundation Award.

He has also been a laureate in international piano competitions in France and Malaysia, the Australian National Piano Award and the 2014 Symphony Australia Young Performer Awards.

As well as performing in Australia, the UK, France, Spain, Indonesia and Malaysia, David Soo has recently given his first recitals in Beijing and at London's Barbican. Recent highlights include performances for Her Majesty the Queen (at Goodenough College), the Lord and Lady Mayor of London, the Sheriffs and guest judges at the Old Bailey and at Australia House.

His performances have also been heard live on Australian Classic FM, New Zealand Classic FM and Spanish Radio.

We are delighted to welcome him to Chobham Festival.

…Soo’s rendition of Liszt’s 1858 Rhapsodie Espagnole is something else… It’s a work that demands spills, thrilling glissandi sweeping up the keyboard, rhythms of Spanish dances from Andalusia… It’s vertiginous, outrageously showy, profoundly musical. Soo pulled off the difficult feat of making Liszt’s showmanship emotionally telling in the way his more searching works are.” Fringer Review
