John is the youngest of our 5 video reporters covering the XV International Tchaikovsky Competition. He will be focusing on the Cello Competition during the month of June 2015, and until July 3. Meet with him!

John is 22 years old. He is Brazilian-Spanish but lives in Paris. He is a classical pianist and a filmmaker.


"My life has always been guided by two great passions: classical music and filming," says John. "After graduating at the Paris Conservatory (CNSMDP) in piano, I founded my own production company dedicated mostly to the arts. This collaboration with is an amazing experience that links those two passions. Some of those promising young talents participating this year in the competition are good friends that studied together and even shared the same concert halls. Being able to be part of this legendary Competition and to follow their experience in a completely different point of view is something really special for me." Welcome on board, John!
