2017.05.24, Anthony Tommasini: The devotion of [Heartbeat Opera] to Puccini’s music was evident in the sensitive arrangement of the score (by the co-music director Daniel Schlosberg)... a richly detailed yet delicate rendering that enhanced the drama’s intimacy. ...I found the jazz-infused arrangement very insightful into the colorings and seductive allure of Bizet’s score. Mr. Schlosberg conducted from the piano. He also played a mean accordion during the dance numbers at the inn. (archive)
2017.05.17, Mary von Aue: In Mr. Schlosberg’s arrangement of the score for an intimate ensemble... the haunting melody of the “humming chorus” gives way to a dream sequence, assembled from scenes of Puccini’s Act I. (archive

2016.04.04, Alex Ross: Schlosberg’s scoring—whistling tones of bowed vibraphone and cymbals, the harplike sound of strummed piano strings, the slide of a shot glass on an electric guitar—put a modernist frame around the action, although the substance of Donizetti’s score came through. (archive)

2015.04.01, Heidi Waleson: ...witty five-instrument arrangement (archive)


Oregon Arts Watch
2017.08.04, Tristan Bliss: ...the extra creepy, cosmic-horrific, mind-breaking Twin Peaks... manifest in ways the original could never quite delve into deeply enough. ...an imaginary episode of Twin Peaks directed by a skilled young composer... everything feels darker, slower, stranger, a little more mysterious and a lot more disturbing. (archive)
