Ernesto Rodrigues official website

He has been playing the violin for 20 years and in that time has played all genres of music ranging from contemporary music to free jazz and improvised music, live and in the studio.

His main interest shifted towards contemporary improvised and composed music, as well as indeterminate and graphic scores by Gerhard Stäbler. Studies with contemporary composers Emmanuel Nunes, Eurico Carrapatoso and Paulo Brandão.
