Dario Meta’s performing activity has led him to play in relevant venues in the last seasons, both in Spain and abroad. Recent and future commitments include concerts at Teatro Real in Madrid, Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid (in a concert sponsored by the UNO), Festsaal from Berlin’s Red Townhall, the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg, Beethoven Haus in Bonn, Auditorio Miguel Delibes in Valladolid, Musik und Kongresshalle in Lübeck or the Royal Academy of Fine Arts San Fernando in Madrid. He has also been invited by the festivals Lateinamerika Herbst in Hamburg, Summer Classics (Community of Madrid), Classical Beat (Germany), Música en Segura (Jaén, Spain), Festival Jóvenes Pianistas de Sigüenza or the International Spring Festival of the University of Salamanca.
He has recorded piano music for the Spanish Public Radio and Television and has performed as a soloist with The Green Orchestra (under conductor Jose Luis Lopez Anton) in Salamanca, and with the Youth Orchestra of Leon (JOL at Auditorio Ciudad de León (in León, Spain), along conductor Fernando Ortiz.
Darío has developed in recent years an interesting activity in the field of classical music outreach: he has collaborated in the magazine of the National Federation of Music Students in Spain with the blog Why should conservatories change? and gave a talk about music at TED Talks. Since 2018 he has been a regular collaborator at Spanish Classical Radio (Radio Clásica). From July to September 2019, he hosts his own radio show on this same station, where he also plays live music weekly: Open your ears (Abre los oídos).
Dario has been artistically trained in Spain and Germany, at the conservatories of Castile and Leon (under the guidance of German pianist Sophia Hase), Hochschule für Musik Freiburg and Musikhochschule Lübeck, there as a fellow of the Wardwell program of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, under the direction of Professor Konrad Elser. He has also been awarded scholarships by the German DAAD program, the MusikERkennen program and the Possehl Foundation (Germany).
Masterclasses and courses by Josep Colom, Ferenc Rados, Joaquín Soriano, Pavel Gililov, Eldar Nebolsin, Elza Kolodin, Boris Berman, Tibor Szász, Bernd Glemser, Casrte Quartet and Yago Mahúgo (harpsichord and fortepiano) round up his training. He currently keeps on learning new ways on the path of improvisation with Emilio Molina and the Institute of Musical Education (Spain).
He combines his concert agenda with his job as a demonstrator for Yamaha Spain and as a teacher at the High Conservatory of Music of Castilla y León (COSCYL), in Salamanca.
