An Evening with David Syme

David Syme is a consummate pianist — bold and forceful, subtle and tender, summoning whatever the notes call for, but injecting his own affinity, interpretation, and flexibility.
— The Prague Post

David Syme is presented through the generosity of Valerie and Patrick Moran.

David Syme, American piano virtuoso living in Ireland, has had a long and colorful career. He has performed in Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Wigmore Hall, and in major venues in 17 European countries, Canada, and Mexico.

An alumnus of Juilliard and Indiana University, Syme was a protégé of the legendary Jorge Bolet. He was schooled in the grand tradition of the great masters, and also studied with Ozan Marsh, Sascha Gorodnitzki, Ania Dorfmann, Louis Kentner and Constance Keene. He has recorded two dozen albums with such orchestras as the Royal Philharmonic, the Vienna Symphony, and the Czech National Symphony; concerto engagements in the past several seasons have featured the Tchaikovsky, Grieg, Schumann, Liszt E-Flat, Gershwin, and Rachmaninoff's Second and Third with orchestras in the United States and Europe.
