Pro Series Concert – Daniel Tselyakov, Piano
An acclaimed Brandon University music alumnus will return virtually to give a piano performance as part of the BU School of Music’s pro series.
Daniel Tselyakov will give an extended performance that includes pieces by Bach, Beethoven, Scriabin and more. It will be streamed live on the School of Music’s Facebook and YouTube pages.
“This is a special concert as it is a bit of a homecoming for Daniel,” said BU Dean of Music Greg Gatien. “We are so proud to be celebrating Daniel’s success, given his deep roots in our community, the great work he did in his time in the Conservatory and at the School, and we look forward to hearing even more from him during this summer’s Clear Lake Chamber Music Festival.”
The live-streamed concert will take place Tuesday, March 9, beginning at 7:30 p.m. It is expected to last about two hours.
Daniel Tselyakov has been acclaimed as “…one of several young musicians in a deep pipeline of keyboard talent coming out of Canada.” (Natasha Gauthier, Artsfile) and “Daniel plays as a nightingale sings with all that he is and all who listen are enthralled for the love it” (Virtuosi Concert Series). Born into a musical family Daniel began his piano studies at the age of five with his father, well-known Canadian pianist Alexander Tselyakov, before subsequently completing a Bachelor of Music degree at the Brandon University with Dr. Michael Kim and at the Oberlin Conservatory with Angela Cheng and a Master of Music degree at the Université de Montréal. Daniel is presently pursuing his doctorate with Dr.Ning Lu and teaching at the University of Utah, USA. Daniel made his first public performance with Tchaikovsky’s Children’s Album at age six. In April 2014, he debuted at the Kennedy Center in Washington. He was the youngest musician ever to be invited as a guest artist with Winnipeg’s Virtuosi Concerts (performing four times) and had earlier performed Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 as guest soloist with the Penderecki String Quartet. He has appeared as a soloist with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, the Canadian Sinfonietta and the San Luis Potosi Symphony Orchestra, Mexico. He was a prize-winner in several competitions including Livorno Competition in Italy and San Jose Piano in USA], and has also performed in several International Festivals such as the Festival of the Sound in Perry Sound (named Stockey’s Young Artist 2020-2021), Music and Beyond in Ottawa, Clear Lake, Agassiz, Texas, and Gijon Piano Festival.
