David Phillips' interpretations of composers as varied as Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert have garnered him wide acclaim and invitations to appear with notable institutions such as The Armenian Philharmonic, The San Antonio Symphony and The Dubrovnik Symphony.
"Pianist David Phillips joined Soprano Aimee Puentes in Non temer and was the soloist in Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 27 in B-flat – his last, dating from 1791. Phillips showed himself to be a stylish Mozartean with a firm, clear touch and a lyrical sense of line. He is a poet in the purest sense of the word. His timekeeping was impeccable; a marvelous pairing with Michael Morgan's steady conducting."
“We have, however, heard something rather like the Piano Concerto in F before, namely just unscrolled every anything Gershwin put together for an orchestra. But Soloist David Phillips is not like any pianist on this planet. From an impeccable memory every inscrutable note through his curling fingers. Phillips is super-sensitive performer blessed with an endearing tendency. ( The late Glenn Gould’s was to hum through his performances; others called it groaning.) Phillips’is to contort his mug as if deflecting the tantalizing tension between each note. Never seen anything quite like it. A night of Gershwin was a night of ice on fire and we loved it.
