Daniel Swenberg

Daniel Swenberg specializes in historical plucked strings: Renaissance and Baroque lutes, theorbos, and baroque and 19th-century guitars, and baroque mandolino–and yes, it takes a lot of time tuning. He performs regularly throughout North America with ensembles: ARTEK, REBEL, The Metropolitan Opera, Mr. Jones & the Engines of Destruction, Ensemble Viscera,  New York City Opera, Opera Atelier/Tafelmusik, Catacoustic Ensemble, Orchestra of St Luke’s,  Apollo’s Fire, The Green Mountain Project, with soprano Nell Snaidas, Lizzy & the Theorboys. He has accompanied Renee Fleming and Kathleen Battle at Carnegie Hall. Daniel received awards from the Belgian American Educational Foundation (2000) for a study of 18th century chamber music for the lute, and a Fulbright Scholarship (1997) to study in Bremen, Germany at the Hochschule für Künste. He studied previously with Pat O’Brien at Mannes College of Music, receiving a Masters degree in Historical Performance (Lute).
