As has been mentioned by David Hirschfelder, music composer and music director for Shine (1996), both his first name and that of concert pianist David Helfgott, who is subject of Shine (1996), was "David".

During the Rach 3 performance David's hands are dripping with sweat, dry, then dripping with sweat again.
