Ney Rosauro

Ney Rosauro

Ney Rosauro is recognised as one of the most original and dynamic symphonic percussionists and composers today. Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on October 24th 1952, he started studying percussion in 1977 with Luiz Anunciação of the Orquestra Sinfonica Brasileira.

Dr. Rosauro studied Composition and Conducting at the Universidade de Brasilia. He then received the Masters Degree in percussion at the Hochschule fur Musik Wurzburg in Germany under Professor Siegfried Fink. He completed his Doctorate at the University of Miami under the supervision of Fred Wickstrom.

From 1975 to 1987 he was percussion instructor at the Escola de Musica de Brasilia, and timpanist with the Orquestra do Teatro Nacional de Brasilia in Brazil. From 1987 to 1999 he was head of Percussion Studies at the Universidade Federal de Santa Maria in South Brazil, where he also conducted the Percussion Ensemble. In 2000 he began his current position as Director of Percussion Studies at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida, USA.

As a composer he has published more than 50 pieces for percussion as well as several method books. His compositions are very popular worldwide and have been recorded by internationally acclaimed artists such as Evelyn Glennie and the London Symphony Orchestra. His Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra has been performed by over 1,000 different orchestras worldwide, and his five solo CDs have received critical acclaim and been hailed by percussionists and general music-lovers alike.
