Gustavo Tavares

vc,
Musician of Classical

Classical cellist. Gustavo Tavares is a Doctor of Musical Arts and a versatile musician, playing frequently with classical as well as jazz and popular artists. He has performed throughout his home country, Brazil, and in some of the most famous concert halls and festivals around the world. He has appeared as a soloist as well as a conductor with many orchestras, including the Orchestra d’Archi Italiana, the National Theater Orchestra in Brasí­lia, and the Johannesburg Philharmonic. He has been described as “one of the most important Brazilian names in the classical music of our time” (Correio Braziliense, 3.27.2005) and is considered a specialist on Latin American music. In 1995, together with clarinettist Paquito d’Rivera and pianist Pablo Zinger, he created the ensemble Triangulo, which according to American critic C. Berg helped “redefine the basic assumptions of chamber music.” With this ensemble he has presented a diverse Latin American music repertoire for audiences throughout the world, and the ensemble recorded several CDs. One of the ensemble recordings was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2001, and yet another was listed as “Record of the Year, 1997″ by the Brazilian newspaper”O Estado de São Paulo.” Also active as an arranger, his work has been performed and recorded by artists such as Yo-Yo Ma and the Buenos Aires String Quartet. He has been a student of Antonio Janigro at the Stuttgart Musik Hochschule, in Germany, where he graduated with the highest marks in 1986, and, while working towards his Doctorate, was also Bernard Greenhouse’s assistant at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. Gustavo Tavares enjoys teaching and this activity has brought him in contact with talented young musicians, not only in well established conservatories and festivals of many countries but also in poor neighborhoods of Africa and the Americas.
