Daneshpour studied at the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music, the Juilliard School, and the Cleveland Institute of Music. Her talent has been recognized through a stunning array of awards including the third prizewinner of the 2017 Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition, the 2014 prizewinner at the Seoul International Music Competition in Seoul, South Korea, a 2013 Laureate of the ProLiance Energy Classical Fellowship Awards of the American Pianists Association, the 2012 First Prize winner of the XII Concours International de Musique du Maroc (Morocco), and first prize and Gold Medal winner of the 2007 International Russian Music Piano Competition.

A review of her performance with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in The Washington Post declared, “she created transfixing poetry. And she found delightful details in passagework and incidents that other pianists treat as routine.” Of her work as a soloist at the International Keyboard Institute and Festival in New York, the New York Concert Review wrote, “she lavished color on oft-neglected line, illuminated subtle beauties, and raged through the storms, always with stunning polish…she exhibits…blazing technique, power, expressivity, imagination, and a lovely stage presence.” Ms. Daneshpour delivers piano performances with a one-of-a-kind blend of passion, artistry, and virtuosity.
