The New York Times
2017.05.24, Anthony Tommasini (archive): 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), richly detailed yet delicate... I found the jazz-infused arrangement very insightful into the colorings and seductive allure of Bizet’s score. [Schlosberg] also played a mean accordion
2017.05.17, Mary von Aue (archive): 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.

New Yorker
2018.05.28, Alex Ross (archive): Schlosberg... has a flair for cutting and repurposing famous operas without mangling them
2017.05.31, Russell Platt (archive): The orchestra is cut down to an arrangement (by the composer Daniel Schlosberg) for harp and string quintet that recalls the mellifluous elegance of the original  
2016.04.04, Alex Ross (archive): 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 


The Wall Street Journal
2017.05.07, Heidi Waleson (archive): Schlosberg, the company’s co-music director, created ingenious seven-player arrangements of their orchestral scores, including some artful transitions
2016.03.14, Heidi Waleson (archive): ...ingenius rescoring by Schlosberg
2015.04.01, Heidi Waleson (archive): ...witty five-instrument arrangement


Schmopera
2018.10.29, Lara Secord-Haid (archive): ..."Feed the Snakes" by Daniel Schlosberg [is]... heartbreakingly lyrical


Oregon Arts Watch
2017.08.04, Matthew Andrews (archive): ...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.
