Almost 30 years old, the Spaniard David Moliner pursues a two-track career: on the one hand he has made a name for himself as a percussionist, playing under conductors such as Simon Rattle, Peter Eötvös and Matthias Pintscher. He was also appointed professor of percussion at the ESMAR, the Valencia Music Academy, in 2019. His repertoire includes Bach arrangements just as well as works by Morton Feldman, John Cage and Vinko Globokar. At the same time, Moliner is in demand as a composer; his works have been performed by the National Orchestra of Spain, Klangforum Vienna, Ensemble Intercontemporain, Ensemble Recherche, the Lucerne Festival Academy and various chamber music ensembles. Among the numerous awards he has received, the Composition Prize of the Berlin University of the Arts stands out, which commissioned Moliner’s orchestral work Estructura I in 2017. His works for solo instruments include III Piano Nocturnos, Solo for Vibraphone and Sinergy for solo flute (all 2017).
