A musician and interdisciplinary artist of diverse interests, Daniel Schreiner is continuing to fashion an eclectic career marked by experimentation and radical discovery. As a piano soloist, Daniel has performed in New York, Massachusetts, North Carolina, France, and Italy; as a dedicated chamber musician, Daniel has worked with the Mannes American Composers Ensemble, NewMusicMannes, and the Berkshire Symphony, as well as ensembles at nief-norf Summer Music Festival, soundSCAPE Festival, l’Acadamie Internationale d’Été de Nice, Bowdoin International Music Festival, and Eastern Music Festival. In 2017, Daniel won the Steinway Award for exceptional performance for his graduation recital at Mannes College of Music, which featured works by J.S. Bach, Schubert, Chopin, Prokofiev, and Tristan Murail. While at his undergraduate studies at Williams College, Daniel won the 2012 Berkshire Symphony Concerto Competition and received Highest Honors for his performance thesis-recital, which focused on the influence of Claude Debussy.
Having also majored in Studio Art while attending Williams College, Daniel is interested in integrating two-dimensional visual art, sound art, and performance art with the musical realm. Last year, he piloted a new multidisciplinary project called tranceFormation, examining the ways musicians, dancers, and audiences are psychologically affected by minimal, trance-inducing music. He lives and freelances in Brooklyn, NY, USA, giving frequent recitals and developing projects centered around alternative ways of cultivating and empowering communities.
