Another Gratuitous Daniel Behle Post

So, Daniel Behle just got a recording contract with Decca (who hasn't, you ask? Well, JK for one...) And since it's the year of the Gluck, he has a brand new recital of Gluck arias, both rare and familiar. The first video is a promo clip with some chatting and rehearsal moments. 

The second video is a complete performance of “Quercia annosa sull'erte pendici” from Antigono (no, I've never heard of it either.) Finally, we have an audio-only clip of a more familiar aria (unfortunately for him—and I do love you, Daniel—he has a ton of heavy competition on this one, including (to name but two) the recent La Monnaie performance by Stéphanie d'Oustrac, and an awesome Richard Croft recording. But we won't write him off for that. He has a lot to offer, and (hopefully) many more years of singing ahead of him!


  1. Terrific! I love seeing videos like these where the singer feels free to move how they wish (unlike on an operatic stage where more limitations apply). So fun.

    1. I used to find it annoying, and sometimes I still do, but it can be fascinating, too.
