David Fung

“impossibly virtuosic, prodigiously talented”

Praised by The Washington Post for his “ravishing and simply gorgeous” performances, pianist David Fung is widely recognized for interpretations that are elegant and refined, yet intensely poetic and uncommonly expressive.

Mr. Fung regularly appears with the world’s premier ensembles including the Cleveland Orchestra, the Detroit Symphony, the Israel Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the San Francisco Symphony, as well as the major orchestras in his native country of Australia.

As a recitalist and chamber musician, Mr. Fung is a frequent guest artist at prestigious festivals and venues worldwide. Festival highlights include performances at the Aspen Music Festival, Blossom Music Festival, Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival, Brussels Piano Festival, Caramoor, Edinburgh International Festival, Hong Kong Arts Festival, the Ravinia Festival, Tippet Rise, and Yeosu International Music Festival.

In the 2020-21 season, Mr. Fung made his Los Angeles Philharmonic debut alongside Yuja Wang and conductor Gustavo Dudamel in the Sound/Stage series at the Hollywood Bowl, play-directed Bach with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, and returned to Caramoor for performances with both bass-baritone Dashon Burton and the Verona Quartet. Highlights for the 2021-22 season include appearances with the Charleston, New Haven, Niagara, Racine, and Vallejo Symphony Orchestras, performances with the Las Vegas Philharmonic together with Tessa Lark and Joshua Roman, a special project with Nico Muhly at Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue in New York City, and debuts at the Grand Canyon Music Festival and Tucson Winter Chamber Music Festival, where he reunites with the Dover Quartet.

Mr. Fung garnered international attention as a laureate of the Queen Elisabeth International Music Competition in Brussels and the Arthur Rubinstein Piano International Masters Competition in Tel Aviv. In Tel Aviv, he was further distinguished by the Chamber Music and Mozart Prizes, awarded in areas in which Mr. Fung has a passionate interest.

The first piano graduate of the prestigious Colburn Conservatory in Los Angeles, Mr. Fung also studied at the Hannover Hochschule für Musik and the Yale School of Music. His teachers include Claude Frank, Peter Frankl, Margaret Hair, John Perry, and Arie Vardi.

Mr. Fung is a Steinway Artist.
