studied Lied, Concert and Opera at the University of Music and Theatre in Leipzig under Hermann Christian Polster. As well as his diploma, he completed his music post graduate studies with excellence.
He won the first prize for diverse singing competitions and was awarded with a scholarship from the Hans and Eugenia Jüttig Foundation and from the Richard-Wagner-Association Leipzig. In addition to his studies he completed master classes with Thomas Hampson, Wolfram Rieger, Peter Schreier, Theo Adam and many more.
His extensive repertoire reaches from early baroque to as far as first premiers of contemporary music. With impressive success Daniel Blumenschein sang the very demanding baritone part in “A Sea Sym- phony” composed by Ralph Vaughan Williams and accompanied by the Berlin Philharmonic in the Gewandhaus Leipzig.
Daniel Blumenschein sings Opera performances, concerts and song recitals at Festivals such as the Händelfestspiele Halle, the Bachfest Leipzig, the Kunstfest Weimar or at the Opernfestspiele in Peralada and San Sebastian.
He has worked with ensembles including the Thomanerchor Leipzig and the Gewandhauschor, orche- stras such as the MDR Sinfonieorchester, the Gewandhausorchester, the Staatskapelle Halle or the Hamburger Symphoniker and many more including the Leipzig Barockorchester, the Barockorchester L’Arco and the Collegium musicum Salzburg.
The Opéra de Nice, Oper Halle or the Anhaltische Theater Dessau, are few of the Opera Houses Daniel Blumenschein has appeared for guest engagements, for example in the role of Guglielmo in “Cosi fan tutte” under the production of Joachim Herz.
