Heloísa Fernandes Quartet


heloisa fernandes quartet

Tuesday, Feb. 11, 7:30 p.m.
Weis Center Concert Hall

Brazilian pianist and composer Heloísa Fernandes encapsulates the sound of a woman free to study literature, poetry, nature and the classical, jazz and Brazilian musical worlds, and to let them shape her identity and flow into compositions. Her creations, described as both strong and original, effortlessly bridge ancient and modern influences, blossoming with rhythmic vitality and melodic delicacy. With her skill as an improviser, she searches for emotional depths and soars with joy. “Fernandes is beyond categorization,” wrote the Post and Courier of her American debut. “She is herself, and I’ll always be interested in any music she cares to explore.” In addition to herself, the quartet includes Toninho Carrasqueira (flute), Sidiel Vieira (bass) and Ari Colares (percussion).

She is a Visa Brazilian Music Award recipient and a celebrated finalist, known for critically acclaimed albums like Fruto, Candeias and Inzu. With a rich repertoire, collaborations and contributions to award-winning projects like the Project Ms. Mozart, which was recognized at D&AD in London in 2021, Fernandes continues to make a profound impact on the world stage.
