Chamber Orchestra of St. Lukes: Celestial Dialogues
Countertenor Daniel Bubeck calmed the audience with his presence and voice. His melodious sounds, well controlled volume, as well as professional tonality gave to "Giulio Cesare in Egitto" arias particular personality and grace. Mr. Bubeck was an architect of the play honored with the quality of the ensemble.

Chamber Orchestra of St. Lukes: Celestial Dialogues
The highlight of the evening was Mr. Bubeck's realization of "Father in Heaven" from Judas Maccabaeus. Here, this young singer dazzled with purity of tone, and the unique setting within a temple added a level of poignancy. The crowd felt this, as well, and Mr. Bubeck was deservedly accorded the one curtain call of the night.
…"Vivi Tiranno," from Rodelinda, showcased Mr. Bubeck's talent for melismatic ornamentation. It was so gratifying to hear them actually delivered on pitch that stylistic considerations paled before technical artistry.

IU Opera Theater: Giulio Cesare (Handel)
Countertenor Daniel Bubeck made a commanding figure of Caesar. On this occasion, he showed splendid command of the vocal pyrotechnics that he and Wedow and Handel decided would properly fill out his part of the score.

Princeton Festival: A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Britten)
Daniel Bubeck, the countertenor who sang Oberon, looked fantastical in his sci-fi costume with punkish hair, and his voice...was alluring.

Princeton Festival: A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Britten)
The fairy king, Oberon (a pretty scary dude, if you think about it), is sung, remarkably, by a countertenor, in this case Daniel Bubeck, a thoroughly impressive singing actor.

San Francisco Symphony: El Niño (Adams)
On screen Wise Men are members of the police, but they are simultaneously recreated onstage by our gesturing countertenors (Daniel Bubeck singing eloquently as Balthazar).

Adelaide Festival: El Niño (Adams)
Daniel Bubeck (who sang Balthazar) has a particularly lovely voice, but it is amazing how sweet three countertenors singing together can sound.
University of Louisville: Concert of Bach Arias with Wieland Kujiken
Countertenor Daniel Bubeck sang the three Bach arias in a clear, lightly-inflected voice that beguiled with its smart touches of portamento.

IU Opera Theater: A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Britten)
Daniel Bubeck’s contralto is fuller and more richly vibratoed than the sounds that I’m familiar with from early music performers.
