Album Notes
Daniel Pollack

According to Time magazine, "pianist Daniel Pollack's artistry has a flair for the romantics." Pollack's two romantic classical recordings on Four Winds First Kiss and Passionate Kiss encompass that flair, the tonal beauty, the grand line sweep and the power that has brought Pollack universal acclaim.

Daniel Pollack began his studies at the age of four, and made his debut with the New York Philharmonic at the age of nine, performing Chopin's First Piano Concerto. He is a graduate of the Julliard School from the class of the legendary Rosina Lhevinne. He continued his graduate studies at the Hochshule fur Musik in Vienna under a Fullbright scholarship.

Pollack first came to the international music world's attention, when he became a prizewinner in the International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow. Subsequently, he concertized throughout the former Soviet Union, and became the first American to record there. His concert career has taken him across the United States countrywide, and worldwide across four other continents - Europe, Asia, South America, and Africa.

Daniel has been on the music faculty of the University of Southern California for 25 years. When not teaching or performing, he is much in demand on International Competition juries, among them the Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, and Rachmaninoff in Russia, and the Queen Elizabeth Piano Competition in Brussels. His talent has also attracted attention from Hollywood. When actress Amy Irving played Prokofiev's Third Piano Concerto as the winning pianist in "The Competition" (co-staring Richard Dreyfuss), the performance on the soundtrack was Pollack's.
