Pianist Danny Holt has been called “exceptional” by the Los Angeles Times, and The Record (Waterloo, Ontario) described him as “the classical music equivalent of an extreme sports athlete.” He brings his boundless energy and wit to performances of classical repertoire as well as music by the composers of today. He has performed internationally in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and the Hollywood Bowl, and has performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Bang on a Can All-Stars, and Blue Man Group, among others. Gramophone called Holt’s Fast Jump CD (Innova Recordings, 2009) “a compelling showcase for Holt’s innate virtuosity and gregarious temperament” and Holt has released five CDs in subsequent years.

A native of Longmeadow, MA, Holt currently resides in Southern California and splits his time between the bustling city of Los Angeles and the quiet desert town of Desert Hot Springs. For more information, visit: www.dannyholt.net.

Holt’s program highlights lesser-known works including Brahms’ lively Variations on a Hungarian Lied, an obscure Mozart sonata movement, and works by composers often overshadowed by their more famous relatives: C.P.E. Bach, Franz Xaver Mozart, Clara Schumann, and Fanny Mendelssohn.  $15 suggested donation.  All are welcome!
