Since that time, the link with the legendary Argentinian pianist turned into an intense artistic cooperation. With Martha Argerich, Daniel Rivera performed in piano duo (two pianos and piano 4 hands) at the Teatro Ponchielli in Cremona, at the Teatro Lirico in Cagliari, at the Politeama Theatre in Catanzaro, at the Teatro Nuovo Giovanni di Udine, at the Piano Festival of Pietrasanta and Ascoli Piceno, up the legendary concerts on 19th and 20th October 2012, at the Teatro El Circulo of Rosario (Argentina) – four CDs have been released in June 2014, edited and distributed by IRCO in Buenos Aires – and for the inauguration of the Petrarca Theatre in Arezzo on December 2015, and the prestigious “Greek Theater” of Taormina (Sicily) in August 2019. Still for IRCO Cosentino in Buenos Aires he recorded two CDs with Franz Liszt Opera transcriptions and paraphrases, as well as the 12 Trascendental Studies. Jury member within some relevant international piano competitions, Daniel Rivera is extremely keen of teaching: besides his faculty chair at the “Istituto di Alta Cultura Musicale Pietro Mascagni” in Livorno, at “Accademia Strata” in Pisa, at the “Academy of the Arts” in Sarzana and at the “Musica Ritrovata” Academy in Livorno, he is frequently invited to hold several high piano courses and master classes in Italy and abroad, such as at UNR, University of Rosario (Argentina) Conservatory of Music in Udine, Parma, La Spezia, Bari, Monopoli, Trieste, Cosenza, the Lemmeintitut in Leuven, Belgium, the “Summer Musical Holidays” in Urbino, the International Festival “Duchi d’Acquaviva” in Atri, “Via Francigena” International Arts Festival in Lucca, and the Livorno Music Festival.
Born in 1952 in Rosario (Argentina). Thanks to the scholarship gained by winning the first prize “Vincenzo Scaramuzza” organized by the “National Fund for Arts” and the “Argentinian Mozarteum” in 1973 he moved to Italy where – under the direction of M°Alessandro Specchi – he achieved the Italian Diploma at the Cherubini Conservatory of Music in Florence with 10/10 cum laude grade and the honor mention. Then he completed his studies with M°Alessandro Specchi and Maria Tipo in Florence and with Ludwig Hoffman in Munich.

Teresa Trevisan, Flavio Zaccaria debuted in 2002 at the International Festival in Bitola (Macedonia) where they successfully performed a rare transcription for piano four hands of the Brandenburg Concertos of Bach-Reger by Filippo Trevisan, which was widely acclaimed by audiences and critics thereafter. “.. The duo’s stylistic signature is the extreme care in producing timbres, which is the natural link between their pianism and the spiritual level of the listener…..the enviable precision and the astonishing combination of contrasting registers with the flowing lines of the music….. the sensitive flow in the expression, the amazing refinement of the tonal palette, the plastic tempo… ” – Horizons of Music, Sofia-Bulgaria, May 2013. ” … They create a perfect team and the execution is crystal clear in the contrapuntal sections … technically… blend into a fine ensemble piano, full of art and poetry, with intelligent balance…” – Piano Journal, London, 2013.
