Joao Paulo Santos (b1959)

Born in Lisbon in 1959, João Paulo Santos is a graduate of the Lisbon National Conservatory. With sponsorship from the Gulbenkian Foundation, he completed his piano studies in Paris with Aldo Ciccolini (1979/84). For the past 37 years Santos has been associated with the Teatro Nacional de S. Carlos, the Lisbon Opera House, first as chief chorus conductor and now as Director of Musical and Stage Studies. He has distinguished himself artistically as opera conductor, concert pianist and researcher of lesser-known works by Portuguese composers. He has conducted operas from Menotti to Sondheim and given Portuguese premières of works by Stravinsky, Hosokawa, Hindemith, Martin and Henze, having received the Acarte 2000 Prize for his musical direction of Henze’s The English Cat. He has been invited to conduct world première performances of works by António Chagas Rosa, António Pinho Vargas, Eurico Carrapatoso and Clotilde Rosa, and has also discovered, revised and taken to the stage Portuguese operas such as Serrana, Dona Branca, Lauriane and O Espadachim do Outeiro. As a pianist, he performs as soloist, in chamber music groups, with major singers and in duo both with cellist Irene Lima and violinist Bruno Monteiro. His discography includes repertoire that ranges from Chat Noir Songs to works by Saint-Saëns, Liszt, Satie, Martinů, Poulenc, Luís de Freitas Branco and Jorge Peixinho.
