Daniel Reuss studied with Barend Schuurman at the Rotterdam Conservatory in the Netherlands.
In 1982, he founded the Oude Muziek Koor Arnhem, which attained a very high level of performance. It decided to expire in June 2007 after 25 years. From 1988 until 1998, Daniel Reuss also conducted vocal ensemble VENUS. This chamber choir consists of 26 advanced amateurs who perform twice a year with a combination of classical and modern choral repertoire and commissioned compositions.
From 1990 until 1997, he conducted the Dutch Student Chamber Choir, that focuses on bringing young talent together.
In 1990, he became director of Cappella Amsterdam, which he turned into a full-time professional ensemble that is now one of the most sought after in the Netherlands.
In the summer of 2006, at the invitation of Pierre Boulez, Daniel Reuss taught and conducted at the summer 2006 Lucerne Festival Academy.
