Daniel Gutmann is a young singer and musician from Austria. The upcoming bass-baritone is currently a vocal student at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. In 2013, the bass-baritone Daniel Gutmann gave his opera debut as "Don Alfonso" in Mozart's opera Cosi fan tutte at the Salzkammergut Festspiele in Gmunden, Austria. In 2015, he appeared in Benjamin Britten's opera A Midsummernights Dream as "Demetrius". Last summer he was praised for his appearance as "Leporello" in Mozart's opera Don Giovanni and his role as "Buonafede" in Haydn's opera Il mondo della luna at the Schlosstheater Schönbrunn and the Kulturfabrik Hainburg. Daniel Gutmann is the winner of several awards of international singing competitions. He is member of COMPANY OF MUSIC, a professional ensemble of singers, who frequently gives concerts in the Wiener Konzerthaus. He is also manager and frontman of his own band THE GROOVECAKE FACTORY. A concert tour with the "Webernkammerchor" of the University of Music and Performing Arts brought him to the United States in 2016.
Daniel Gutmann will be accompanied by New York-based pianist Peter Walther. Peter Walther has lived a life of music. From classroom teaching on many levels, to playing the organ and the piano professionally, to lecturing and teaching opera and keyboard, he has immersed himself in a discipline that feeds his love of beauty, balance and perfection. W. A. Mozart especially is a musical god to him. He is not only addicted to opera but to historical opera recordings as well as to historic live performances, and is a card carrying member of both the Elgar Society as well as the Donizetti Society. He has been in love with the city of Vienna ever since he first studied there in 1968 and now spends his summers in a Viennese atmosphere wherein he thrives. It was his great good fortune to meet up with Daniel Gutmann last August and he is grateful indeed to be able to make music with a fine performer as well as to enjoy some Austrian ambiance here in Washington. He hopes all of you enjoy this program half as much as he has enjoyed making the music come alive for you, his public.
