Reviews

“Conductor Daniel Blendulf delivered beautiful interpretations: Beethoven’s Coriolan overture sounded Mozartian with dark and sweeping undertones and Sibelius's Second Symphony was developed through close attention to detail whilst maintaining focus on the bigger picture. The sound he brought out of the orchestra was warm and overall superb. Daniel Blendulf is simply a conductor of pure quality.” (Sydsvenskan, September 2013)

"Daniel Blendulf, the cellist turned conductor, has gone from young and promising to impressive. In a programme of Beethoven and Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony, he displayed both musical depth and emotional breadth with assuring confidence. He has the ability to pull out all of the stops while still giving the sound space to breathe - allowing the audience to hear the whole, and the individual lines, simultaneously. (DN.se, May 2013)

“Daniel Blendulf, who has turned to conducting from the cello, steered the orchestra with precision while at the same time bringing to the fore the work's humour and playfulness…He was a confident master of the orchestra and gave every indication that he is someone from whom we can expect great things in the future.” (Värmlands Folkblad, November 2012) 

“Daniel Blendulf brings a graceful and finely balanced approach to the reduced forces of the Kungliga Hovkapellet, and deals masterfully with the challenging acoustics of the hall in bringing both Lena Hoel’s soprano and the delicate instrumental voices to the fore. ” (Nummer.se, June 2012)
