My name is Alexandre Dias, I'm a Brazilian pianist and researcher, and in 2015 I created the Brazilian Piano Institute (Instituto Piano Brasileiro), whose mission is to preserve our rich pianistic legacy. Brazil has produced fantastic composers such as Heitor Villa-Lobos, Ernesto Nazareth and Tom Jobim, and amazing pianists such as Nelson Freire, Magda Tagliaferro and Guiomar Novaes. But much of this memory is scattered or, in many cases, almost lost.

To revert that, we constantly upload new content to our website (www.institutopianobrasileiro.com.br), our facebook page, and our youtube channel, by using several strategies:

- digitizing donated collections, which might include rare recordings, photos, clippings, manuscripts, concert programs, etc, and making them available for the first time on the internet. Check our images section, which contains several hundred rarities.
- uploading creative videos - check out our playlists "Por dentro das partituras" (which syncs audio and scores) and "videogames + Brazilian piano"
- scanning as many scores as possible and cataloging all of them (our sheet music section has over 10,000 scores catalogued so far, and hundreds available for download)
interviewing prominent Brazilian pianists and composers and inviting them to record rare Brazilian piano pieces (we have a playlist for that as well).
- cataloging as much info as we can on our online specialized website sections: encyclopediadiscographytimelinesheet music and library

We want to build the most comprehensive database on Brazilian piano, which is already helping musicians, researchers and piano lovers worldwide. 

Our website is still Portuguese-only, but we have plans to make an English friendly version this year, and eventually translate the whole content. 

By backing us, you will receive each month a carefully selected pdf album with 10 rare Brazilian scores, spanning different styles and difficulty levels, which will offer a generous glimpse on our rich pianistic tradition.

Also, with your help, we will be able to increase our productivity, providing an even richer content on our channels.
