Praised for having “… [a] voice [which] abounds in velvet timbre, which can sound both dramatic and lyrical” and “a real dramatic baritone voice… applying impressive mezza voce in dynamics, but also letting the tone resound evenly in full, voluminous fortes, including top notes”, Spanish-American baritone Daniel Luis de Vicente is quickly establishing himself at an international level. Recently the winner of the 2020 Austrian Music Theater Prize for best male supporting role, he is quickly gaining recognition for his fully scoped and thrilling interpretations of 19th and 20th century Italian repertoire.
