I hope my typing is better than it has been lately. This is from the Beaux Arts program 12/6/98.
Antonio Meneses, cellist, was born in Racife, Brazil, into a family of musicians. His father was first horn player at the Opera of Rio de Janeiro. Mr. Meneses himself began to study the cello at age 10. (Note to Theo - see, it's not too late.) During a tour of South America, the famous cellist, Antonio Janigro met him and requested he join his classes in Dusseldorf and in Stuttgart. In 1977, Mr. Meneses won First Prize at the International Competition in Munich, and in 1982 was awarded First Prize and Gold Medal at the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow.
Mr. Meneses regularly performs with many of the world's leading orchestra such as the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, to name a few.
In September 1992, he made his debut in Washington under Mstislav Rostropovitch. In August 1995, Mr. Meneses was one of the soloists of the Mostly Mozart Festival in Japan. He is also a guest at many important festivals including Puerto Rico (Festival Pablo Casals), Salzburg, Lucerne, the Vienna Festwochen, the Berlin Festwochen, the Prague Spring Festival, and New York (Mostly Mozart).
Mr. Meneses has made two recordings for Deutsche Grammophon. He has also recorded The D'Albert Concerto and works of David Popper both with the Basel Symphony Orchestra.
