About Plínio

Born and raised in São Paulo, Plínio Fernandes fuses the tradition of classical guitar with Brazilian folk music.

An exclusive Decca Gold recording artist, Plínio released his debut album, Saudade, in 2022, which hit Number One on the Billboard Traditional Classical Albums Chart. His second album in the recording partnership, Bacheando, was released in September 2023, and explores Bach’s influence on Brazilian music.

The 2023/24 season sees Plínio embark on a five-date duo recital tour of the UK with Sheku Kanneh-Mason which includes a sold-out performance at London’s Wigmore Hall. In addition to regular collaborations with Sheku, Plínio performs frequently with Lang Lang, including at his 2022 Royal Albert Hall concert which features on Disney +.

Plínio was named on Forbes Brazil's Under 30 list, a Rising Star by Classic FM, and recently received the Revelação Award at the 30th Annual Prêmio da Música Brasileira. A passionate advocate for music education, Plínio was invited to join London Music Masters as an ambassador, and is involved with performing, teaching and guiding young musicians in schools.
