“In his new marimba concerto, named Ardor for its radiating energy and brightness, Erkki-Sven Tüür, Estonia’s best-known composer after Arvo Pärt, has fashioned a virtuoso showpiece for the young Portuguese percussionist Pedro Carneiro.”
The Guardian, January 30th, 2002

“The brand new Marimba Concerto “Ardor” is a nimble, rhythmically brilliant and sonorously enchanting work, in which the symbiosis of the soloist and the orchestra is absolute. Both feed the other as much as they can. The concerto proceeds like an improvisation, with the immediacy and freshness of intuition. Since the Portuguese Pedro Carneiro already figured as the soloist in the premiere, his supreme touch didn’t come as a surprise. Moving around his instrument with the lightness of a dancer, this virtuoso has totally internalised the musical ecstasy and the rage of the work.”
Aamulehti (Tampere, Finland), May 11th, 2002

Pedro Carneiro is one of the very few percussion players to have made an international career as a soloist, and has established himself as one of the world’s foremost solo percussionists, performing regularly throughout Europe, the Far East and the USA.
Now at the age of 27, Carneiro has performed and conducted the world première of over 50 works and appears regularly with a wide range of acclaimed musicians such as the harpsichordist Elisabeth Chojnacka, the pianists Valentina Lisitsa, Alexei Kuznetsoff, Ruben Alves and Artur Pizarro, the Chilingirian String Quartet, composers Steve Reich, Egberto Gismonti, James Dillon, Emmanuel Nunes and Django Bates.
