Having had his arrangements and compositions recorded by an impressive list of artists ranging from Tom Jobim to Joyce to Leny Andrade, Mário Adnet has been more visible internationally since the '90s. In 1974, Adnet started to study music theory. Completing high school studies in the U.S., he moved to Austria and continued his musical studies at the Vienna School of Music. Adnet teamed up with Cláudio Nucci from 1977 to 1979. In the next year, he released his first album together with pianist and composer Alberto Rosenblit. In 1981, he was a finalist in TV Globo's MPB 81 and, until 1982, he was an arranger for Polygram. In 1983, he started to arrange for several artists like Joyce, Vinícius Cantuária, and Cláudio Nucci. His second album (and first solo one), the independent Planeta Azul (1984), was awarded by the Independent Producers Association. In 1990, Joyce, Lisa Ono, Clara Sandroni, Leny Andrade, and Trio da Paz launched his songs in the U.S., Europe, and Japan. In 1994, Tom Jobim recorded Adnet's arrangement of "Maracangalha" (by Dorival Caymmi) on his last CD, Antonio Brasileiro, which got a Grammy. Together with Djavan and Jorge Ben Jor, Adnet performed in 1994 in Miami. That same year, his CD Pedra Bonita (with special guests Tom Jobim, Joyce, Paulo Moura, Ivan Lins, Lisa Ono, and his sister Maúcha Adnet) was launched in Japan, where he performed the next year through several cities with Ono. In 1998, his soundtrack to the film Buena Sorte (Tânia Lamarca) won first prize in the II Brazilian Film Festival of Miami. ~ Alvaro Neder
