Hailed as “a pianist to watch” by New York Classical Review and “a dashing pianist” by The Sunday Times, Daniel Vnukowski tours throughout North/South America, Asia and Europe. His insightful interpretations of the standard classical music repertory are supplemented by creative projects, which resulted in a sold-out Carnegie Hall recital in 2019. In addition to participating in fundraising projects for humanitarian causes, he has performed many outreach concerts for remote communities throughout Canada and is Artist Director & Founder of the Collingwood Summer Music Festival.

“Pianist Vnukowski revives music of a neglected composer in impressive Carnegie debut…this assertive, fearlessly virtuosic Chopin style was filled with thoughtful exploration and a kind of questioning illumination.

– Linda Holt, New York Classical Review
