Eudóxia de Barros

The classical pianist Eudóxia de Barros, the most important interpreter of Ernesto Nazareth's works, had a solid background with renowned teachers like Magda Tagliaferro, Pierre Kostanoff, Lazare Lévy, and Pierre Sancan. In 1953, having been selected as a soloist by the Brazilian Symphonic Orchestra in an open contest, she executed the first national performance of Villa-Lobos' "Concerto #1," accompanied by that orchestra conducted by Eleazar de Carvalho. Ten years later, she started to do recitals and lectures about Nazareth. In 1965, she taught at the School of Arts of North Carolina (Winston-Salem), having been appointed unanimously in the next year the winner of a contest for the soloist of the symphonic orchestra of North Carolina, having toured subsequently the U.S. with the orchestra conducted by Benjamin Swalin. Having performed at the Town Hall and at Carnegie Hall, she lived in Germany in 1969 and 1970, after which she returned to Brazil, where she toured the North and Northeast, invited by the Federal Committee for Culture. In 1994, Eudóxia de Barros executed the first world performance of Osvaldo Lacerda's "Cromos," for piano and orchestra, having won, in the next year, the national prize of music from the Funarte Foundation as the best interpreter. ~ Alvaro Neder
