June 21: Baritone Ryan de Ryke and Pianist Daniel Schlosberg

Baritone Ryan de Ryke and pianist Daniel Schlosberg perform Schubert’s Schwanengesang, D. 957 and other works to be announced.

Ryan de Ryke has performed at many of the leading international music festivals, including Aldeburgh and the festival at Aix-en-Provence. The Baltimore Sun wrote of him, “Once again baritone Ryan de Ryke proved that he has few peers in negotiating an immensely vocal range, and he does so while maintaining a magnificent tone.” De Ryke has become a key member of Chicago’s important Haymarket Opera Company, consistenly garnering high praise from the Chicago Tribune and Sun Times in the title role of Handel’s “Pimpinone,” among other roles. In addition to his opera and oratorio work, de Ryke is devoted to art song and has maintained an artistic partnership with Roger Vignoles, with whom he has given recitals of settings of Heinrich Heine. With Daniel Schlosberg he has appeared at the Phillips Collection, and two times previously at LACMA, in songs of Wolf, Schubert, and Eisler.

Daniel Schlosberg has been described as an “expert pianist” (Boston Globe), and his performances have been praised for their “intellect and passion” (Washington Post). As a collaborative pianist, Tim Smith of the Baltimore Sun wrote that he “was a model accompanist, bringing out the remarkable richness of the piano writing.” Schlosberg has appeared as featured soloist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in subscription concerts and recently gave the world premiere of and recorded Augusta Read Thomas’s “Starlight Ribbons,” commissioned by Harvard’s Fromm Foundation. In the art-song realm, he has a longstanding collaboration with baritone Ryan de Ryke, and he is the director of the Baltimore Lieder Weekend, held each October. Schlosberg has also served as a staff pianist for Ravinia’s Steans Music Institute vocal program. He has been on faculty at the University of Notre Dame since 2005.
