The Brazilian harpsichordist, Rosana Lanzelotte, has played in important halls throughout her country as well as in Europe, including recitals at the Wigmore Hall and St. Martin-in-the-fields (London), Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (Lisbon) and Palazzo Barberini (Rome).
As a researcher, Rosana Lanzelotte devotes herself to the area of Music Information Retrieval, developing techniques for effective availability of musical archives through the Internet. For ten years, she has been running one of the most remarkable musical series in Rio - “Music in the Churches” - which concerts take place all over the city, including its poorest regions and “favelas”. Some outstanding artists played in the series, such as Heinz Holliger, Christophe Rousset, Accademia Bizantina and Ensemble Zefiro. Due to her achievements, she has been awarded with the “Golfinho de Ouro” prize by the Cultural Council of Rio de Janeiro.
Rosana Lanzelotte has released four solo CDs, among which the first recording on the harpsichord of The Seven Last Words by Haydn. Her CD The Brazilian Harpsichord, totally devoted to Brazilian music of the 20th century, has been pointed out as one of the five best releases of the year. Her next project features unknown Portuguese works to be recorded on the 18th century Calisto harpsichord owned by the National Music Museum in the USA.
