"A refined technique and a repertoire of excellent taste." -  Fábio Lima 


Eduardo Gutterres (1997) is a multi-awarded guitarist that has established himself as one of his generation's leading musicians in Brazil. Most recently, he was awarded the 1st prize in the Eisenberg-Fried Concerto Competition (New York/2022), playing the Castelnuovo Tedesco Guitar Concerto in D Major.

Gutterres is currently part of a guitar quartet with the Brazilian guitarists and Augustine Strings Artists João Luiz, Gabriele Leite e Octavio Deluchi. The quartet was formed in 2022 for a project curated by Luiz celebrating the 70th birthday of Brazilian guitarist and composer Sérgio Assad. Appearances at the Long Island Guitar Festival, Lincoln Center's Sonic Festival as well as recitals at the Graduate Center of CUNY and the São Paulo Chamber Music Festival are some of the highlights of the quartet's 2023 season. The quartet's repertoire consists of Luiz's own works, his arrangements of the music of Jobim and Villa-Lobos, as well as the music of Paulo Bellinati in a program that shows the great variety of rhythms for which Brazil is well known.

Eduardo Gutterres also performs in duo with the guitarist Gabriele Leite, with whom he toured around Brazil during the summer of 2022. They have been playing concerts in internationally important events such as: the Opening Concert of the United Nations Security Council Meeting, and the Opening Concert of the event “Person of the Year”, organized by the Chamber of Commerce Brazil-United States. Most recently, they have won the Lillian Fuchs Chamber Music Competition, in New York City.

In Fall 2021, in partnership with the Brazilian streaming platform called ZapMusic, Gutterres worked on the production of the documentary “Guitar Around the World'', where he showed his routine as a young Brazilian living in New York, studying in one of the most important music conservatories in the world. The documentary is divided into 12 episodes.

Eduardo holds a Bachelor of Music with honors from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil), where he studied with Paulo Inda and Flávia Domingues Alves. In 2019, he moved to São Paulo (Brazil) after he was chosen among 200 Brazilian applicants as the Magda Tagliaferro Scholar, which is a sponsorship provided by the Cultura Artística Foundation for young Brazilian musicians. In 2021, he was accepted to the Manhattan School of Music, where he received a scholarship to pursue a master's degree advised by Mark Delpriora.
