Drawing inspiration from different world genres, chants, voices, poems and found sounds, Henrique Eisenmann is changing the paradigm of contemporary improvisation, creating an original musical universe that is powerfully inventive yet accessible and entertaining. Born in São Paulo, Brazil, Eisenmann has always been intrigued with the idea of translating different musical sonorities to the piano.

Says Eisenmann: “To what degree can I challenge your perception of melody, of tonality, of pulse? Maybe the joy of art is exactly to focus on these less expected pathways, these new directions filled with surprise and excitement.”

Eisenmann collaborates with artists from all different fields - dancers, poets, and actors - and has worked with such musicians as Gunther Schuller, Luciana Souza and Tom Zé. He is a faculty member at NYC’s Juilliard School and Boston’s New England Conservatory.

“In literally everything he does he leaves the listener breathless, for scarcely has one thought through one Henrique Eisenmann idea, then another comes into being, unfolding musically more beautifully than the first.” - JazzdaGama
