During chamber music projects with Peter Kooi, Jed Wentz, Marie Leonhardt, Silas Standage, Daniel Hope, Michala Petri a.o. he visited many European and Asian countries, as well as the Canada, USA and South America. Daniel Deuter leads orchestral workshops, coaches young ensembles and teaches baroque violin (International Summer School of Early Music Valtice, Le parlement de Musique, Michaelsteiner Sommerakademie, Bednarska Summer School in Warsaw). Together with his Ensemble CordArte from Cologne, he performs chamber music of the 17th century.
Since 1993 he has been Concert Master of the Batzdorfer Hofkapelle which is dedicating itself to stage performances of operas and other works, mainly from the Dresden repertoire. Since 2013 he has been teaching Baroque violin at the Music Academy in Bydgoszcz, Poland. His work is documented in many CDs from Supraphon, musicom, pan-classics, Raumklang, Kammerton and Accent.
