Daniel Glover Pianist Daniel Glover has performed in 42 states and 25 countries throughout Europe, Asia, North America, South America and the Caribbean.
The San Jose Mercury News said, “Glover is an incisive, exciting, and apparently tireless player…a natural for hyper-virtuosic challenge.” He has been hailed for his “extraordinary technique, analytical understanding and determined phrasing from the first to the last bar.” (Südhessische Post, Germany)
The San Francisco Classical Voice remarked, “Brilliant, tender, whimsical, sparkling…Glover brought everything together into a well balanced, evenly measured medium.” “The elegance and civility of Glover’s approach was musically unimpeachable.” “Dazzling…golly can he play! I kept expecting smoke to emerge from the interior of the instrument…a flawless sense of Lisztian style incorporating its emotional depth.”
Monterey Peninsula Reviews said, “He is a master of intricate detail and can produce truly magical sounds.”
Mr. Glover has trained with such luminaries as Eugene List, Abbey Simon, Jerome Lowenthal, Nancy Bachus and Thomas LaRatta. He holds a master’s degree from New York’s Juilliard School, where he was a scholarship student.
