Blending classical elegance with contemporary innovation, Daniel Verstappen has performed at notable events, to the Belgian King and Queen at World Expo in Dubai, and with international artists such as Andrea Bocelli and Ennio Morricone. Starting playing the piano at the age of 5, his goal is to connect generations with each other and to highlight the classical piano in modern and innovative ways, thereby inspiring young people. 

Enjoy stunning renditions of famous classic works and Daniels neoclassical compositions of his album Reconnection, together with violinist Beth Georgiou. Beth is a composer, producer and accomplished multi-instrumentalist based in Belgium. Born in the UK she studied violin, saxophone and piano, earning cum laude at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music in London. As an multi-instrumentalist, Beth has performed around the world as a solo instrumentalist as well as part of ensembles and orchestras.

Verstappen regularly features talented musicians during his performances and connects with the Sydney Conservatorium by inviting award winning pianist Michael De Huy to join him on stage.

Michael leads an eclectic and multi-faceted career, weaving together his skills as pianist, improviser, arranger and composer. Michael has also featured as soloist with orchestras such as the Hanoi Philharmonic Orchestra and the SCM Symphony Orchestra. As a composer he has released two studio albums of solo piano compositions and his style has been described as “both refreshing and extremely relevant”.
