He recently recorded Lee Actor’s Piano Concerto, a work dedicated to him, in Bratislava, Slovakia with the Slovak National Symphony Orchestra.

Daniel Glover has served on the faculties of New York University, University of the Virgin Islands, University of San Francisco, and Notre Dame de Namur University. Glover has performed in 42 states and 27 countries throughout Europe, Asia, North/South America and the Caribbean. The San Jose Mercury News said, “Glover is an incisive, exciting, and apparently tireless player…a natural for hyper-virtuosic challenge.” He has been hailed for his “extraordinary technique, analytical understanding and determined phrasing from the first to the last bar.” (Südhessische Post, Germany) Mr. Glover has trained with such luminaries as Eugene List, Abbey Simon, Jerome Lowenthal, Nancy Bachus and Thomas LaRatta. He holds a master’s degree from the Juilliard School, where he was a scholarship student. He has recorded ten CDs, which have been broadcast on radio stations in Israel, Argentina, Germany, Canada, and the United States. He recently became a published author and editor for Dover editions, including the two piano edition of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concertos Nos. 2 and 3.
