My research revealed that Celso Machado is a virtuoso Brazilian guitarist, percussionist, multi-instrumentalist and composer. Drawing on his thorough study of classical guitar, Celso composes for guitar and ensemble. His compositions are infused with the traditional music of Brazil: samba, chôro, baião, frêvo etc.
His compositions are published by Editions Henry Lemoine in Paris and are performed and recorded by both students and professionals around the World, from solo performances to guitar orchestras. Many of his scores have been adapted for other instruments: piano, violin, cello, clarinet, pan pipes, harp etc
