André Mehmari, piano

Pianist André Mehmari is considered one of Brazil’s most prolific and talented musicians. His compositions have been performed by leading orchestras such as Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo and chamber ensembles such as the São Paulo String Quartet, and his career in jazz and Brazilian popular music has attained wide attention with performances in all of Brazil’s major jazz festivals and abroad at Umbria Jazz, the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage and Juan Les-Pins in France. In his solo piano concerts, Mehmari delves into the musical cross-pollination that informed and influenced what is modern Brazilian piano, comparing the creation of Ernesto Nazareth’s pioneering style to that of Scott Joplin in ragtime and jazz.
