David Malet

Repertoire Pianist



He started music at a young age in the Escolania de la Catedral de Barcelona, where he received his first lessons in organ and piano. Later, he entered the Conservatori Municipal de Música de Barcelona, where he graduated in piano, chamber music, pedagogy, accompaniment, and organ, with honors and distinctions. His teachers were Maria Jesús Crespo for piano, and the prestigious Catalan organist Montserrat Torrent for organ. He furthered his studies at the University of Vienna with the organist Michael Radulescu and studied orchestral conducting with Reinhard Schwarz and Georg Mark at the Conservatory of the same city, where he brilliantly obtained the Diploma by conducting a public concert with the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra. More recently, he obtained a Master's degree in Performance at the Conservatori Superior de Música del Liceu.



He has performed with most of the major formations in Spain (Coro Nacional de España, Orquesta de RTVE, Orquesta de Tenerife, Real Filarmonía Santiago, OBC, Orquestra de Cadaqués...) and with conductors such as Neville Marriner, Franz Brüggen, Josep Pons, orVassily Petrenko. He revived and directed the Capella de Música de Sta. Maria del Pi in Barcelona and led the Cor de Cámara Francesc Valls, a professional choir of the Barcelona Cathedral, for six years. With this choir, he carried out several projects to recover musical heritage and stimulate new creation. Among these projects, the recovery since 2009 of the Cant de la Sibil·la at the Cathedral on Christmas Eve stands out.


The CD he recorded of this Cant received the Enderrock 2015 Award for the best early music album. He has been a guest conductor of various orchestras and choirs in the Iberian Peninsula, and led the Orfeó Laudate de Barcelona for 15 years. His discography includes 13 CDs, in addition to several recordings for Catalunya Música, TV3, RNE, and TVE.


He served as an organist at the Barcelona Cathedral for 15 years and has had an intense career as a pianist, organist, and conductor.

Currently, he continues to give concerts throughout Spain, and occasionally abroad. He is the titular organist at Palau Güell, also in Barcelona, and the pianist of the choral conducting class at ESMUC, as well as the piano accompanist for the voice class at the Conservatori Profesional de Música de Badalona.


He is a chamber music teacher and pianist for the Lied and Melodie course at the Conservatori Superior de Música del Liceu in Barcelona, and he also teaches organ and foreign languages for singers.
