About the Artist:
The prestigious literary magazine Jornal de Letras describes Andreia Pinto Correia’s compositions as “a major contribution to the dissemination of Portugal’s culture and language, perhaps a contribution larger than could ever be imagined.” Her music — described by the Boston Globe as “compellingly meditative” and by the New York Times as an “aural fabric” — is characterized by close attention to harmonic detail and timbral color. Following a family tradition of scholars and writers, her work often reflects the influence of literary sources from the Iberian Peninsula and beyond.
She is the recipient of internationally renowned honors, awards, and commissions, and her works have been performed all over the world to great acclaim. In addition to composing orchestral and chamber works, she has collaborated with an array of artists including filmmakers, writers, and choreographers.
