Early Music
in a Different Way ;)

Hello!

I´m Eduardo from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I love to create  multi-track recordings of early music as well as my own compositions. I´m a multi-instrumentalist, being able to play among others, keyboard (harpsichord, organ, piano and clavichord); strings (viola da gamba, hurdy-gurdy); woodwind (crumhorns, recorders, different kind of bagpipes); percussion, and more. 

My goal is to produce multi-track  audio and video recordings of high quality sound, but with an informal, fun approach and feel. I believe this is a good way to make classical/ancient music accessible to those (specially children) who may not have seen or heard it presented in this way by making it feel friendlier and less distant. ​

I´m a dreamer who believes everyone should have access to XVI, XVII and XVIII century music. Are you ready to dream with me?

A multi-instrumentalist with an emphasis on the repertoire from the 13th to the 18th centuries, Eduardo has a bachelor's degree in harpsichord (2009) and a master's degree in interpretative practices from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro UFRJ (2012), and was awarded with scholarships for scientific initiation and a master's degree under the guidance of prof. Dr. Marcelo Fagerlande.

 

Having joined the baccalaureate course at the age of 17 and since 2012 being a harpsichordist at the UFRJ School of Music, he actively participates as a collaborator and researcher at Semana do Cravo, an annual event promoted by the university and dedicated to the instrument in Brazil.

Eduardo was musical director of the artistic occupation “Sempre Seu” (“Always Yours”) (2015/16) at Espaço OI Futuro at the invitation of choreographer Márcia Milhazes and plastic artist Beatriz Milhazes. As a musician, interpreter and consultant he worked on the soundtrack of the soap opera Deus Salve o Rei (2018) by Rede Globo. As tenured harpsichordist at the Johann Sebastian Rio Orchestra, Eduardo has been prominent as an exponent of continuous bass, performing alongside renowned international soloists such as Jennifer Larmore (Sala São Paulo), Domenico Nordio, Linus Roth and Antonio Meneses (Sala Cecília Meireles) .
