PIANO MAN: Daniel Hsu of Fremont has shown great promise on the piano.

Just as the lanky 23-year-old Van Cliburn triumphed during the Cold War—capturing the gold medal over the Soviets in 1958—this 20-year-old pianist from Fremont is earning respect with mounting medals of his own. He’s been at it since he was just 6 years old. Hsu has grown into an eloquent performer with a detailed, natural flow to his progressions. Hsu eases over keys and has moments of bold musicianship. He’s toured with the Brentano and Verona string quartets. Hsu recently released a debut album on Decca Gold that features compositions from the 2017 Cliburn Competition.
