Daniel Schreiner | Printempo

To close the 2022 Printempo, Daniel Schreiner, pianist and FEU alumnus returns to the Grand Salon to present a recital based on the elements. The program includes one world premiere by Luciano Leite Barbosa and one piece by Sato Matsui, composer and artistic director of IMAGO, in residency at FEU.

I am so excited for the opportunity to return to Paris and perform at the Fondation des États-Unis after a two-year hiatus. All the pieces on this program draw inspiration from one (or more) of the four elements: earth, air, fire, and water. While living a more confined existence during the pandemic, I took refuge in learning solo piano repertoire that describes the vastness of the natural world and its processes, recalls faraway places, and represents an escape from the limits of human perspective and imagination. The order I present these pieces is designed to tell a story with no defined narrative – simply relinquishing the illusion of control over nature and going with the current. — Daniel Schreiner

A musician and interdisciplinary artist of diverse interests, Daniel Schreiner is fashioning a career of experimentation and radical discovery. As a concert pianist, Daniel has performed internationally at venues in France, Italy, New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, Ohio, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington, D.C. As an avid chamber musician, Daniel has worked with members of the JACK Quartet, Alan Pierson of Alarm Will Sound, Kathy Supové, Betsy Jolas, Ensemble Calliopée, Contemporaneous Ensemble, InfraSound, LIGAMENT, Balance Campaign, BlackBox Ensemble, NewMusicMannes, and the Berkshire Symphony. 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 piano music. His experimental sound art installations have been featured in exhibitions in Sardinia, Italy; Berlin, Germany; and Yonkers, NY. A recipient of the Harriet Hale Woolley Scholarship from the Fondation des États-Unis, Daniel spent the 2019-20 academic year in Paris, France, studying at La Schola Cantorum with Billy Eidi and performing works by Fauré, Debussy, Messiaen, Murail, and contemporary Paris-based composers. Daniel’s latest projects include a trilogy of piano works inspired by the water cycle, multi-movement graphic scores written for open instrumentation, and new global collaborations spawned from his recent residency with OneBeat.

Born in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil, 1982), Luciano Leite Barbosa is a composer interested in computer-assisted composition, microtonal harmony and sound synthesis. He began his studies in acoustic and electroacoustic composition at UNIRIO. In 2010, he moved to the US to complete a Doctoral degree in Composition at Boston University. His music has been featured in concerts and festivals such as IRCAM’s ManiFeste (France), Gaudeamus Muziek Week (The Netherlands), among others. His compositions were awarded prizes at the Domaine Forget/Rencontres de Musique Nouvelle 2013, the Ossia New Music Competition 2015, among others.
In 2017/ 2018, Luciano attended the Cursus program at IRCAM, and collaborated with performer Jean-Etienne Sotty and researcher Benjamin Matuszewski (IRCAM’s ISMM team) in the composition of Color Fields, for XAMP microtonal accordion, smartphones and electronics. He was awarded in the CAPSULE program at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris in 2021. He currently teaches at the Conservatory Jean Wiéner in Bobigny and his scores are published by Babel Scores.

Born in Chitose, Japan, Sato Matsui is a Paris based composer and collaborator whose musical language draws influence from traditional Japanese sonorities as well as her training as a classical violinist. Her music has been performed in halls such as the Alice Tully Hall and the McClelland Drama Theater in the Lincoln Center, Merkin Hall, and the American School of Ballet, to name a few. She arrived in France with a Fulbright Scholarship to study the manuscripts of Erik Satie and is currently a Starr Doctoral Fellow at the Juilliard School where she earned her master’s studying with Robert Beaser.
