Daniel Swenberg, Lute and Theorbo

North Carolina native, Daniel Swenberg, specializes in Renaissance and Baroque performance practice, with special devotion to the role of basso continuo playing and the instruments central to its practice: theorbo, chitaronne, Renaissance and Baroque lutes and early guitars. He studied with Pat O’Brien at the Mannes College of Music where he earned a Masters Degree in Historical Performance. Prior to his concentration on lutes, Daniel studied Musicology at Washington University (St. Louis) and obtained a B.M. in classical guitar from the North Carolina School of the Arts. He has performed with a myriad of ensembles both in the US and abroad, including ARTEK, Metropolitan Opera, Canadian Opera Company, Tafelmusik, Apollo’s Fire, Les Violons du Roy, Piffaro, Musica Pacifica and Stadtstheater Stuttgart. Daniel is on the faculty at Julliard’s Historical Performance program.
