2013 looks promising! I am glad we will continue with Brasil Classical Orchestral Series in São Paulo (May) and Miami (November), II Rio International Chamber Music Week (September) and my II year with Academia Jovem Concertante, this unique Young Musicians Academy Touring Chamber Orchestra program.
Concertante will debut in São Paulo and will tour north and northeast region once more. Bringing classical music to new audiences in remote parts of Brazil.
I am glad to take part to VIII Cyclade International Music Festival in Syros, Greece in August and record my second CD in October.
I will tour with Barra Mansa Symphony in Brazil, playing Rachmaninoff and Prokofieff with this wonderful youth orchestra.
Really working hard to put all of this together, but grateful to God for giving me a chance to know my country more and more by playing classical music here!
Coming back from São Paulo after Rachmaninoff second concerto with Heliópolis Symphony and Edilson Ventureli, I move on to my next challenge.
The first edition of my festival: Rio International Chamber Music Week. It will take place at Tom Jobim Hall, Botanical Garden, from September 19 to 25.
São Paulo Symphony Quartet, Villa-Lobos Quintet, Nina Kotova, José Feghali, Simone Leitão, Giulio Draghi, Henning Kraggerud, Juliana Steinbach, Leitão/Guedes/Pilger Trio and much more...
Two great concerts next month:
Beethoven 5th piano concerto with Neojiba Symphony and Ricardo Castro at TCA in Salvador
and Rachmaninoff 2nd piano concerto with Helipolis Symphony and Edilson Venturelli at Sala São Paulo.
I feel inspired!!
Happy new year to all! This will certainly be a very busy year for me and Brasil Classical.

My 2012 agenda will soon be updated and will include new projects and continuation of old ones!
