Daniel Zoellner - PianoSociety
Daniel Zoellner was born in Germany in 1985. After having obtained his master's degree in philosophy and German literature, he is currently doing his PhD in philosophy on a topic at the intersection of phenomenology and the cognitive sciences.
Together with a friend, Daniel has written and published a book (in German) on a Christian interpretation of the evolutionary worldview, entitled "Evolution – Geist – Gott. Beiträge zu einer christlichen Philosophie" ("Evolution – Spirit – God. Contributions to a Christian Philosophy").
In his spare time, he likes to read poetry, novels and – above all – plays the piano. He is interested in the whole span of classical piano music and also likes more modern composers like Gershwin, Villa-Lobos and Mompou – but he, too, has a lighter side and plays entertainment music like Ragtime and Tango. He sees the Piano Society as an opportunity to improve his playing and to share some recordings with the world "out there". He is also looking forward to widening his musical horizon by listening to recordings of other members.
