Living in London since 2012, I am a curious musician who happened to fall in love with the violin. I was awarded the distinction of Young Musician of the Year 2017 in my home country of Portugal. This season's highlights include my solo appearance with Gulbenkian Orchestra and my recital debut at Leiria Music Festival and Setúbal Music Festival. I will also collaborate with Porto Symphony Orchestra as guest Co-Leader and perform, for the first time, my own arrangements of Portuguese guitar music by Carlos Paredes. Another exciting project is the formation of the Tejo Quartet.
“André impressed with his virtuosic skills, interpreting Shostakovich Concerto in A minor with aplomb and refined sensitivity.”
