Biography

Fábio Caramuru (São Paulo Brazil, September 14, 1956) is a Brazilian pianist, composer and musical producer. Caramuru was born in São Paulo in 1956 and, although he had some serious training and credentials as a young pianist, he began his professional career as an architect. It was not too long, however, before he exchanged the art of frozen music for that of liquid architecture. In 1980 he received a French government scholarship, enabling him to go to Paris where he studied with the Brazilian-French pianist Magda Tagliaferro. After his return to Brazil, he became director of the Magda Tagliaferro Foundation in São Paulo and Cultural Coordinator of the Brazil-United States Cultural Institute. He was involved with many musical projects including a festival of the music of Camargo Guarnieri, a Magda Tagliaferro Festival, a Brazilian music history project and, among his many recordings, an album of Brazilian composers and also his piano solo arrangements of Tom Jobim. In 2005, the French pianists Katia and Marielle Labèque performed the première of Tom Jobim’s Chovendo na Roseira, which led to the first of a series of new arrangements for two pianos written by Fábio Caramuru. With the bass player Pedro Baldanza, he formed the Duo Caramuru/Baldanza and the two musicians have also worked with the singer Magda Painno, using classical, jazz, popular and even folkloric.
