Brazilian composer Paulo Brito's rising international profile as a composer reflects his commitment to crossing cultural and disciplinary boundaries in bringing contemporary music to new and diverse audiences. In 2018, world-renowned composer Unsuk Chin awarded First Prize to his orchestra piece Staring Wei Jie to Death in the Takemitsu Competition. In 2020, he was shortlisted for the Peter Eötvös Foundation’s prestigious Young Composer Mentoring Program. Concomitantly, he has collaborated with internationally noted artists—both in and outside the contemporary-classical music world, like Israel’s Meitar Ensemble and pianist Oleg Yakerevich, France’s Ensemble Linéa and conductor Jean-Philippe Wurtz, or Japanese Nō performer Ryoko Aoki and her ensemble-no. In the summer of 2021, he was a resident fellow of the Royaumont Festival’s “Voix Nouvelles” emerging composer showcase (France). His upcoming projects include a new work for the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, with a première to be led by conductor Gregor Mayrhofer at Taiwan’s National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts in April 2022.
