Filipe Quaresma



He is "... one of the most interesting Portuguese

musicians of today" (Jornal Público) and has a ".... precise and superbly articulated way of playing, full of passion and often quite contemplative ..." (The Strad Magazine). Quaresma combines his intense solo and chamber music career with teaching at ESMAE, Porto (Portugal). He is first cello of the Baroque Orchestra of Casa da Música (CdM), the Darcos Ensemble, the Remix Ensemble CdM, the Sond'Ar-te Electric Ensemble and the Orchester Révolutionnaire et Romantique.

Quaresma appears in the major halls and festivals in Portugal and across Europe, such as Casa da Música, Gulbenkian Foundation, CCB, New York Carnegie Hall, Hamburg's Elbphilharmonie, Philharmonie de Paris, Berliner Philharmoniker, Royal Albert Hall, Wigmore Hall, Concertgebouw, Tonhalle Zürich, Wiener Konzerthaus, Musikverein, Philharmonie Luxembourg and Palau de la Musica de Barcelona, working with the most prestigious Portuguese and foreign musicians of today. He studied at EPABI (Covilhã) with Rogério Peixinho, at the Royal Academy of Music (London) with David Strange and Mats Lidström, and at Scuola di Musica di Fiesole (Italy) with Natalia Gutman. He has won several prizes and scholarships of national and international prestige, including the ARAM (Associate Royal Academy of Music) in 2010.
