French/Brazilian composer Heloisa Fleury has lived in Paris since 1980, after obtaining a scholarship from the French Government. At the CNSMP she was trained in Composition and Analysis (with Claude Ballif) and Orchestration (with Serge Nigg), and at the Sorbonne in Musicology. Heloisa Fleury has attended several international composition and contemporary music master-classes and has composed a great number of pieces in the late 20th century style, ranging from post-serialism to spectral music. This includes her orchestral works, such as Briseur d’Images and Vom Lichte getragen. Over time she evolved towards a more “classical”, tonal, and, at the same time, a more modern style, with works such as Germinal, an opera rock, and dozens of songs in English, Portuguese or French. Next she entered a sacred music phase, with works like the Brazilian Mass, Missa Brevis, Requiem, Preghiera Semplice and There the soul dwells, among others.
Heloisa has often performed in Europe and won several awards in composition competitions; some of her scores have been edited in France (Editions À Coeur Joie) and in England (Recital Music).
In 2018, Heloisa Fleury’s music was performed three times, at the Hoffnungskirche, Berlin, with Michael Geisler as conductor. In addition to a new version of the Brazilian Mass, others new pieces were also performed, as Ich stehe an deiner Krippen hier, Tempo de Natal, Chacona Latina and Prélude (all these pieces based on J.S.Bach) and Die Seligpreisungen.
