About ECHO Rising Stars: Carlos Ferreira

Portuguese clarinettist Carlos Ferreira pursues a twin career as an orchestral player (formerly with the Philharmonia Orchestra and, most recently, as Principal Clarinet with the Orchestre National de France), chamber musician and recitalist. His magnetic playing, deep rooted understanding of musical style and attention to the finest detail, have won him widespread praise. He’ll bring all these qualities to Debussy’s expressive and seductive First Rhapsody, a deserved cornerstone of the clarinet repertoire, and to his specially commissioned work for this ECHO Rising Stars tour by Lanqing Ding, a fresh and inventive voice in contemporary music.

Ferreira’s partnership with the Portuguese pianist and composer Pedro Emanuel Pereira has resulted in their first album XX-XXI which includes the Suite Duas Igrejas that Pereira has written for Carlos Ferreira. Its angular Praeludium, atmospheric Portuguese Fado and jazzy Postludium contrast with the bucolic and playful melodies of Joseph Horovitz’s Sonatina, which also features on the recording. All of which makes for an ideal Sunday morning concert spent in the relaxed setting of the Jennifer Blackwell Performance Space.

Rising Stars are nominated by the artistic directors of Europe’s most prestigious venues which are members of the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO).

An hour-long Sunday morning concert, with coffee/tea and a slice of cake available before the concert, included in your ticket
