Enjoy Haydn and Mozart’s piano works performed as they intended them to be heard — in a private home on a period instrument.
During the Classical era in Vienna, composers expected their keyboard music to entertain relatively small audiences in more intimate settings than today’s large concert halls. And, the era’s pianos (known as “fortepianos”) are very different from modern Steinways. This special event in the Glen Burnie House includes a wine-and-cheese reception followed by an intimate concert of classical music from Austrian fortepianist Daniel Adam Maltz. A specialist in performing the music of the First Viennese School—which includes works by Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Franz Schubert— Daniel Adam Maltz will perform in the drawing room.
Daniel Adam Maltz is a fortepianist based in Vienna, Austria. He is in demand worldwide with 50+ tour dates per year as a sought-after soloist, chamber musician, Lieder accompanist, and clinician. He hosts Classical Cake, the podcast about Viennese classical music and culture. Daniel studied historical performance at the Royal Academy of Music in London and the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Vienna. Additionally, Daniel studied privately with Ingomar Rainer and Andreas Staier.
