Pedro Carneiro is one of the very few percussion players to have made an international career as a soloist, and has established himself as one of the world's foremost solo percussionists, performing regularly throughout Europe, the Far East and the USA.
Now at the age of 28, Carneiro has performed and conducted the world première of over 50 works and appears regularly with a wide range of acclaimed musicians such as the harpsichordist Elisabeth Chojnacka, the pianists Valentina Lisitsa, Alexei Kuznetsoff, Ruben Alves and Artur Pizarro, the Chilingirian String Quartet, composers Steve Reich, Egberto Gismonti, James Dillon, Emmanuel Nunes and Django Bates.
Pedro Carneiro took up the piano at the age of five, later studying cello and trumpet. At the Conservatorio Nacional in Lisbon he studied with his father and at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama (with a scholarship from the Gulbenkian Foundation) he studied percussion and conducting with David Corkhill and Alan Hazeldine, where he graduated in 1997 with the Head of Department Award.
Pedro also studied with a scholarship from the Centre Acanthes with Sylvio Gualda in 1993 and later in London with the american marimbist Leigh Howard Stevens.
Carneiro has won several competitions and awards (Prémio Jovens Músicos, Prémio Maestro Silva Pereira, Park Lane Young Artists Auditions, Medal of Hounour of the City of Setúbal, Distinction of the Orfeão de Leiria and an award from the Hattori Foundation in London) and performs regularly in festivals and venues such as the BBC Proms, Rhythm Sticks Festival, Queen Elisabeth Hall and Purcell Room in London, Sonorities Festival in Belfast, Macau International Music Festival, Grant Park Music Festival in Chicago, New Zealand International Festival of the Arts, Capital Theatre in Beijing, amongst others. Pedro has also performed recitals in cities such as London, Paris, Los Angeles, Hannover, Seville, Lisbon, Seoul and Hong Kong.
In the last seasons, Pedro Carneiro has been performing the World Premières of several new concertante, solo and chamber works written specifically for him by composers such as Erkki-Sven Tüür, John Psathas, João Madureira, Ian Wilson, Gabriel Erkoreka, Thanos Mikroutsikos and others. During the next seasons, he will be premiering new works by Karen Tanaka, Michael Mantler, Áskell Masson, Paul Wilson, Ricardo Climent, Michael Alcorn, Pedro Amaral, Dai Fujikura and João Pedro Oliveira.
Carneiro is a frequent guest soloist with numerous orchestras: BBC National Orchestra of Wales, London Mozart Players, Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra, Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo, Helsingborgs Symfoniorkester, Estonian National Symphony Orchestra, Orquesta de la Comunidad de Madrid, Orchestre Régional de Basse-Normandie, Gävle Symfoniorkester and Portuguese Symphony Orchestra, to name but a few, working with conductors such as Petri Sakari, John Neschling, Ronald Zollman, Kaspar de Roo, Jurjen Hempel, Olari Elts, Andrew Parrott, Juanjo Mena, António Saiote, John Størgårds, Hamish McKeich, Max Rabinovitsj, Sarah Ioannides and Hannu Lintu, amongst others.
Pedro has been heard and seen on radio and television stations throughout the world (BBC Radio 3, RAI, RNE, K-Mozart, WNYC, Artsworld, etc) and two solo recordings will be released in 2003, "Portuguese Music for Marimba" (Deux-Elles) and "Plainspoken" (Bach and several contemporary composers) on the Tejo Label.
As a composer, his works are published by Editions BIM in Switzerland. His catalogue includes solos, chamber music and works for contemporary dance. He is currently working on a duo for violin and cello for Vasco Barbosa and Irene Lima and on a work for large orchestra and narrator, inspired on works and text from both 20th Century Portuguese writer José Cardoso Pires and 14th Century poet and composer Guillaume de Machaut. Pedro has also presented masterclasses and lectures at the Royal College of Music, Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Trinity College of Music and Welsh College of Music and Drama in the UK, Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts, Universidade de São Paulo, etc.
Pedro studies conducting in Milan with Emilio Pomàrico and is the guest conductor of the Lisbon Contemporary Music Group. He performs exclusively on Malletech marimbas and his website can be found on the internet at www.pedrocarneiro.com.   News & Projects
