"A polished performer, Tavares offered an expressive performance that embraced the work's lyrical and virtuoso demands, his pure, direct sound never wavering from the mission at hand".
Paris based flutist Thomaz Tavares regularly performs, records, and tours with the Orchestre de Chambre Nouvelle Europe under the baton of Nicolas Krauze and is co-founder of Ensemble IMAGO, ensemble in residence at the Fondation des Etats Unis. He was a recipient of the Harriet Hale Woolley grant for the 2019-2020 year during which he explored the French Belle Époque repertoire and the flute music of the composer Yuko Uebayashi. He’s most recently been a guest performer with the Fontainebleau Association, Ensemble Calliopée, and the Open Chamber Orchestra of Paris. He is currently flute professor at the Conservatoire Provinois, in the medieval town of Provins, France.
"Thomaz has an innate sense of musical aesthetics in all styles. The clarity of his playing, his precision, his elegance as an interpreter... show an astonishing maturity for his youth. Furthermore, his talents as an accompanist for the voice on the flute are particularly promising."
"I have always admired his attitude, his virtuosity, his powerful expressiveness but most of all his sincere love for music."
