After completing his training as a church musician, he studied voice with Margit Klaushofer and Robert Holl in Vienna. He participated in master classes with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Nicolai Gedda and Christa Ludwig and was a prizewinner at the Bach, Schumann, Mozart, Hilde Zadek and Wigmore Hall Competitions.

Since his debut in 1998, appearances as a concert, lieder and opera singer have taken him to the major musical centres of Europe, North America, Japan and the Middle East, where he sings works from every period. In addition to regular concerts at the Vienna Musikverein and Konzerthaus, he appears at leading festivals (Styriarte Festival in Graz, Salzburg Festival, Carinthian Summer, Israel Festival, La Folle Journée, International Herrenchiemsee Festival, several international Bach festivals). He performs under such distinguished conductors as Sir Neville Marriner, Bertrand de Billy, Jordi Savall and Enoch zu Guttenberg with various ensembles, including Le Concert des Nations, the Vienna Philharmonic and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.

Song recitals featuring the entire range of German repertoire, in addition to English and French compositions, are a central focus in the work of the singer, who collaborates with such pianists as Simon Bucher, David Lutz, Gerold Huber and Helmut Deutsch. Daniel Johannsen’s recording of the Dichterliebe was released in spring of 2010, following his first solo CD, Tenore & Traverso with arias by J. S. Bach, which received the ORFPasticcio Award. In addition, numerous other recordings, radio and television broadcasts document his creative output.

He will give lieder and chamber music recitals at the Carinthian Summer and the Hugo Wolf Academy in Stuttgart. He sings the title role in Benjamin Britten’s Albert Herring at the Vienna Volksoper and appears in a contemporary adaptation of Henry Purcell’s King Arthur at the Theater an der Wien.
