Heloísa Fernandes


The music of Brazilian pianist and composer Heloísa Fernandes is the sound of a woman free to study literature, poetry, nature, classical music, jazz, and Brazilian music,

to let them shape her identity, and to let her identity flow into compositions. Strong and original, ancient and modern, her sublime creations blossom with rhythmic vitality and melodic delicacy. A highly skilled improviser, she searches their emotional depths and makes them soar 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.”
