Daniela Liebman was born in Guadalajara, Mexico, on June 14th, 2002. She began her piano studies at the age of five and has the distinction of being the youngest soloist in Mexico’s history to appear with a professional orchestra, having debuted at eight-years-old with the Aguascalientes Symphony performing Mozart’s eighth piano concerto. Other solo opportunities quickly followed, and Liebman subsequently played with the Jalisco Symphony, Flademex Symphony, Michoacan Symphony, the Orchestra Sinfonica de Sinaloa, and the Rachmaninov Orchestra of the Kremlin in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. In 2013, Daniela made her Carnegie Hall debut, performing Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Park Avenue Chamber Symphony. 

 Liebman has won first prize in several international competitions: Night in Madrid, 2011; Lang Lang Telefonica, 2011; the Russian Music International Piano Competition, 2012; and the Lang Lang Junior Music Camp Competition, 2013. In 2014, she won the coveted Nacional Premio de Juventud award, and in 2015, she was named one of “The Most Creative Forty Mexicans in the World” by Forbes Magazine.   

Liebman’s hobbies include bicycle riding, surfing, playing chess, exploring new places, and enjoying time with her pug, Chester. She is a citizen of both Mexico and the United States.
