Andreia Pinto Correia

About this Artist

Andreia Pinto Correia’s music — described by the Boston Globe as “compellingly meditative” — is characterized by close attention to harmonic detail and timbral color. Following a family tradition of scholars and writers, her work often reflects the influence of literary sources from the Iberian Peninsula and beyond.

She has received commissions from the New York Philharmonic and Los Angeles Philharmonic (with maestro Gustavo Dudamel), European Union Presidency, Tanglewood Music Center/ Boston Symphony Orchestra, Washington Performing Arts (Kennedy Center), São Paulo Symphony Orchestra (OSESP), Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, League of American Orchestras and the Toulmin Foundation, Fromm Music Foundation at Harvard University, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, American Composers Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, National Symphony and National Dance Company of Portugal, and Culturgest/National Bank of Portugal, among others.
