Cello player Hugo Paiva
Taking advantage of some concerts in Portugal , we were finally able to do the session that was decided a few months later.
Born in Famalicão, he began his musical studies at the age of 12, worked with Paulo Gaio Lima, Jed Barahal, Anatoli Krastev, Márcio Carneiro, Ilia Laporev, Pieter Wispelwey, Xavier Gagnepain, Maria de Macedo, Xavier Philips, Daniel Grosgurin, Jeroen Reuling, Nobuko Yamazaki, Eric-Maria Couturier, Gary Hoffman, Frans Helmerson, among others.
He played in several orchestras such as the Artave Orchestra, the Orchester Aproarte, the Metropolitan Academic Orchestra and the Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, the Metropolitan Orchestra working with the maestros: Luís Machado, Cesário Costa, Nir Kabaretti, Ernst Schell, Jean-Marc Burfin, Emilio de César, Michael Zilm, Mikhail Agrest, Lior Shambadal, Nicolas Chalvin and others.
