My name is Valter Bresolin Pinto de Moraes, composer's name, VALTER BRESOLIN.,born in São Paulo, Brazil. I began studying music at the age of 7. My first instrument was the accordion but when I first played some classical pieces I fell in love with them and changed to piano lesson at the age of 14.However, I had to begin working at 16 as my parents could not afford my studies, therefore I became a teacher of English teaching in schools and privately. I went on studying music on my spare time. I had classes in harmony,counterpoint and fugue with a Brazilian composer, Eduardo Escalante, ex-Camargo Guarnieri's astudent. At that time I had several compositions for several instruments as I sutdied orchestration by WALTER PISTON'S books and Rimsky Korsakov's and Berlioz-Richard Strauss' treatises on orchestration too. As I became a director of a school of English for Brazilian students, money was very important to me and as I had little time I could not dedicate myself intirely to music and, of ocurse I could not become a piano concertist as I would love to or a composer and conductor full time.However I went on studying music by myself until I met Jose Antonio de Almeida Prado who saw my compositions and decided to give me classes on
contemporary music as he had studied with Camargo Guarnieri in Brazil and Nadia Boulanger and Olivier Messiaen in Paris. I followed his advices in order to create my own style and today I am CEO of a franchising company and an amateur composer as I haven't had the chance to have a degree at any university of music.
Thank you for your attention and I do hope to share some or my works with fellow composers. (Hide extended text) ... (Read all)
