Cornish-born Daniel received his musical education at Wells Cathedral School and the Royal College of Music, where his piano teachers were John Byrne and John Barstow.
Winner of the Hopkinson Gold Medal and as soloist in Constant Lambert’s Piano Concerto under the baton of Ian Brown, Daniel graduated with 1st Class Honours and a Postgraduate Distinction in Performance. Thereupon he became a Junior Fellow of the RCM, during which two year period he began to establish himself as an active and diverse musician, as comfortable in solo repertoire and chamber music as accompaniment and teaching.
He has performed all over the world at venues which include the Wigmore Hall, Southbank Centre, National Concert Hall Dublin, Hochschule der Künste Berlin and University of Iowa; and has broadcast frequently on BBC Radio 3, Classic FM, BBC2 and Radio France. Recent performances have included Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto and appearing in the Brass Final of the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition which was shown on BBC television.
