Daniel Brandt, Violin

Daniel received early training (8-10 yrs.) in violin and as a chorister at the Purcell School in London. He performed the ‘Pie Jesu’ solo from the Faure Requiem as a member of St. Christopher Choristers. He completed much of his B.M. at the University of New Mexico with Leonard Felberg where he was Concertmaster of Symphony, Chamber, and Opera orchestras as well as student member of UNM faculty string quartet. Daniel won an audition for a position in the New Mexico Philharmonic during this period and continues to perform with them as his schedule allows.

Daniel went on to complete B.M requirements at University of Minnesota/Twin Cities with Sally O’Reilly who had studied with Galamian before becoming Josef Gingold’s TA at Indiana. Daniel was the concerto Soloist with the North Carolina School of the Arts Orchestra throughout their tour of Italy & France during his period in Minneapolis. He graduated summa cum laude in the honors program.

Daniel received his M.M. with distinction from San Francisco Conservatory in 2003. While there he served as Concertmaster of the Conservatory Orchestra and was a leader in the baroque ensemble. During this period Daniel also performed as Concertmaster of Symphony Parnassus–a small orchestra performing in San Francisco as well as with the Del Sol String Quartet.

Last spring he performed with the Sarasota Opera as a principal violinist and more recently was featured by the Santa Fe Concert Association as soloist on New Years Eve at the Lensic in Santa Fe with German violinist Arabella Steinbacher. He attributes his recent success to working with his friend and mentor Gary Levinson, Senior Associate Concertmaster of the Dallas Symphony. Daniel also performs with the Santa Fe Symphony and Santa Fe Pro Musica, and enjoys hiking, cooking, and excellent wines.
