About David Onac :
Born in 1984, David’s earliest compositional success came at age sixteen (runner-up in the BBC Young Composer of the Year with The Butterfly), but it was towards the end of his undergraduate degree in Music at the University of Cambridge that he became more seriously interested in composition. Subsequently he undertook a year of postgraduate study with Robin Holloway (Cambridge), a further year with Adam Gorb (RNCM) and is now working towards a PhD in Composition with Camden Reeves at the University of Manchester.
As a pianist, David continues to play classical repertoire and jazz, frequently premiering new works including his own. In the UK, his work has been performed in The Crucible (Sheffield), Kettle’s Yard (Cambridge), The Royal Northern College of Music and The Purcell Room, whilst international performances include Fantasia (Sweden), Four Études (in Brussels by Peter Donohoe), and …And the Red Sea… (in the USA and Europe by bass trombonist Jonathan Warburton). Whilst at the University of Manchester, David has had pieces performed and commissioned by the university’s resident Danel String Quartet, the BBC Philharmonic and the university’s Symphony Orchestra. All David’s current projects involve him as both composer and performer, ranging from commissions by Baslow Choir, to violinist Marc Danel, to a piano concerto for himself and the University of Manchester’s showcase ensemble (Vaganza).
