Daniel Fitzpatrick (b. 1995) is a composer, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist with an exceedingly diverse musical background. Having played banjo since the age of seven, bluegrass and folk music have considerable significance in his life as a composer and performer. He has been featured as a banjo soloist and composer in various concerts and recitals at the University of Missouri, Southeast Missouri University, and East Central College. His banjo concertino Ancient Echoes (2020) was showcased at the 2020 Mizzou International Composers Festival in which he performed banjo alongside the Mizzou New Music Ensemble. Banjo virtuoso Tony Trischka has described the piece as “totally impressive.” Daniel has also had the honor to be featured in a collaborative recital with artist Najjar Abdul-Mussawwir’s Reconstructed exhibition at Southeast Missouri State University. During this event, Daniel premiered his piece Premonition (2017) and performed traditional bluegrass music as well as works by Béla Fleck and Tony Trischka. As a banjo player and composer, Daniel is always working on writing and arranging music to reinvent the instrument. For example, his piece Perplexion (2019) fuses the styles of bluegrass, rag, jazz, and contemporary classical music. Furthermore, Daniel has arranged and performed Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Prelude in C# minor Op. 3, No. 2 on the banjo, considerably expanding what audiences think of an often type-casted instrument. In addition to being a banjo player, Daniel also plays piano, guitar, trumpet, and mandolin. Daniel has received many honors as a composer. In 2021 he was selected to be a resident composer for the Mizzou International Composers Festival at which his piece Adapt (2021) was premiered. He was a finalist for the Sinquefield prize for music composition in 2020 and 2021. Ensembles and artists Daniel has worked with include the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, the Mizzou New Music Ensemble, Bjorn Ranheim, Peter Henderson, Evan Watkins, Jenny Hunt, and Alarm Will Sound. Throughout his graduate studies he was the pianist of the Mizzou New Music Ensemble in addition to being an audio and video engineer at the University of Missouri, where he earned his master’s in music composition. His past composition professors include Dr. Carolina Heredia, Dr. Stefan Freund, Dr. Robert Fruehwald, and Dr. Joseph Tyldesley. Additionally, he has studied with composers Evan Chambers, Ami Dang, David T. Little, and Chen Yi. Daniel’s interests in writing music are seemingly limitless as he has explored many different folk traditions in his compositions along with the genres of dubstep, glitch, pop, and modern classical music. Rather than being defined by one particular genre of music, Daniel’s compositions are characterized by the seamless integration of many musical influences.
