MARIA INES GUIMARAES

Maria Inês started studying the piano and the conservatoire of the city of Uberaba, Minas Gerais, in Brazil. She went on to perfect her instrumental technique in São Paulo with the pianist Eudoxia de Barros and also attended master classes given by the concert pianist Magdalena Tagliaferro. From the outset of her career, Maria Inês has always devoted a part of her programmes to both traditional and classical  Brazilian music and she often performs works by Nazareth, Mignone, Abreu, Villa-Lobos, Santoro, Almeida Prado and Antunes.

As concert halls are not always the ideal venues for experiencing popular traditional music, she also performs in bars and cafés in both France and Brazil. In this way, with her group  “Ilustrando o CHORO”, consisting of piano, flute, bass and Brazilian percussion, she  is able to keep alive the almost century old tradition of “Chorinho”. In France, Maria Inês studied the piano with Ana Stella Schic and Françoise Parrot-Hanlet at Paris’ Ecole Normale de Musique. Since December 1996 she has held a doctorate from the Sorbonne University in Paris. This doctorate enabled her to study the works of the Brazilian composer Lobo de Mesquita (1746–1805), under the supervision of Edith Weber. Her thesis was published by Presses Universitaires du Septentrion in 1997.

Her career as a musician is complemented by the publication of articles, books and scores as well as her post as professor at the Conservatoire of Antony, in the Paris region. Maria Inês has also brought out ten recordings as artist, composer and musicology: “Alma Brasileira” (1993, Vibrato Musique) which the critic form the newspaper “O Globo” in Rio de Janeiro hailed as one of the year’s best releases in Brazil; Alberto Nepomuceno – piano works (1994, Marco Polo); Henrique Oswald – piano works (1995, Marco Polo); “Fronteras latinas”  with Andrea Merenzon (1997, Irco-Cosentino/Rádio Clásica); Villa-Lobos – “Saudades das Selvas Brasileiras” (2000, Pavane); “Danses et oiseaux du Brésil” featuring her own compositions (2003, Éditions Billaudot), which accompanied the two pedagogical collections of the same name also composed by Maria Inês; Axuí – “Ilustrando o choro” (2004) with original arrangements of Brazilian pieces, choros, and compositions by Maria Inês. Contrepoint: Villa-Lobos, Kurtág (2006, Integral classic). Primavera: (december 2009, Integral classic). In 2000, La nuit transfigurée released a recording of Lobo de Mesquita’s 1782 work “Dominica in Palmis” for which she acted as musicological supervisor. Maria Inês Guimarães also works to promote Brazilian music through the activities of the Euro-Brazilian Centre (Cebramusik) and the Choro Club of Paris.
