Described as “stylish and articulate” in the New York Times and praised as having “superstar qualities” by Le Libre, pianist David Fung is widely recognized for performances that are elegant and refined, yet intensely poetic and uncommonly expressive. Recent engagements include performances with the Cleveland Orchestra, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, the National Orchestra of Belgium, the National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra, the New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, the San Diego Symphony Orchestra, the San Francisco Symphony, and the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra, and with the major orchestras in Australia, including the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, among others.
A frequent guest artist of prestigious concert series and festivals throughout the world, Mr. Fung has performed at the Aspen Music Festival, Edinburgh International Festival, Music@Menlo, Hong Kong Arts Festival, Ravinia Festival, and has appeared on the stages of Carnegie Hall, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Wigmore Hall, the Queen’s Hall, the Louvre, Belgium's La Monnaie and the Palais des Beaux-Arts, the Zürich Tonhalle, Toronto's Glenn Gould Studio, the Sydney Opera House, the Beijing Concert Hall, the Tianjin Grand Theater, the Shanghai Oriental Art Center, Hong Kong’s City Hall, and Israel's Heichal Hatarbut.
Mr. Fung garnered international attention as a winner in two of the "top five" international piano competitions (the Queen Elisabeth International Music Competition in Brussels and the Arthur Rubinstein Piano International Masters Competition in Tel Aviv).
