Dan Visconti, composer
Dan was a recipient of the Leonore Annenberg Arts Fellowship at the American Academy in Berlin, providing him with the opportunity to associate with other artists, architects, curators, scholars and musicians in a creatively challenging environment. Dan completed commissions from the Minnesota Orchestra and Albany Symphony as well as a new work, Drift of Rainbows, commissioned by the Scharoun Ensemble. His first CD, Lonesome Roads, was released in December 2012 under the Bridge Records label. Recordings of his music are also available from Naxos and Fleur de Son Classics. His compositions have been honored with the Rome Prize and Berlin Prize fellowships, Bearns Prize from Columbia University, Barlow Prize, and Cleveland Arts Prize; awards from BMI and ASCAP, American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Society of Composers, and the Naumberg Foundation. He has also been the recipient of artist fellowships from the MacDowell Colony, Copland House, Lucas Artists Program at Villa Montalvo, and Virginia Commission for the Arts. Dan curated performances of his music at the Nuova Consonanza Festival and composed a new choral work for premiere at Rome’s historic Church of Sant’Ivo alla Sapienze. He completed a multi-year residency with opera companies including Seattle Opera, Opera Theatre St. Louis, New York City Opera, Glimmerglass Festival, and the Metropolitan Opera as recipient of the Douglas Moore Fellowship in American Opera. For his ongoing concert initiatives that address social issues through music, Dan was awarded a TED Fellowship in 2014. In addition, he was selected as the California Symphony’s Young American Composer in Residence. This three-year program (2014-17) will enable him to collaborate with Maestro Donato Cabrera to create, rehearse, premiere, and record three major orchestra compositions. In 2016, Dan was appointed artistic advisor to Astral Artists in Philadelphia in the effort to develop each artist’s unique vision and values and support classical music’s next generation of change-makers. Click here for more information on Dan Visconti.
