Raphael Veronese - musician - composer - recording artist
Raphael Veronese was born on March 5, 1974 in Nova Friburgo , State of Rio de Janeiro -Brazil. He was a child when he began to like music. His father was a lawyer and amateur pianist, who played classical music. Raphael heard his father and showed amazing talent when he tried to imitate him
Raphael Veronese studied in the Brazilian Conservatory of Music in Nova Friburgo. At the age 7 he participated in his first concert, and at 18 he began working with Bands, incluiding: Flor da Jamaica (Jamaica Flower), Lady 57 and Asa de Luz (Light Wing). He also recorded two CDs. One of these CDs with the special participation of renowned artist, Marcus Viana. These events became important to Raphael's artistic life because it stimulated him to begin his own studio. There he records and makes various productions for the local musicians, he does jingles and vignettes for radio and television.
In 1995 Raphael went on a trip to France and he recorded a cassette with Pyrenees inspiration songs. He sent a copy of the cassette to French studio SP Music in Paris. Later he received a formal invitation to record.
With music always in veins he had a dream. He wanted to compose, play and to make his own CD's. Raphael admired and played compositions of other artists, but the seed planted in his childhood grew into compositions that reflected parts of his own life, his search for internal peace. This gave birth to his own composition, music and CD in 2000, "Interior".
In 2003, he got from SESI (Industrial Social Service) an invitation to present his music for various industry workers. During his presentations at company events, he often played with saxophonist Rodrigo Costa.
In 2004 Raphael was invited by Luiz Gasparetto to compose two songs that would be played in "Conscience and Life Space" in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Presently, Raphael is a member of "746 Band" that has a repertoire of songs from years 1960, 1970 and 1980. He also finished his second CD named "Caravana", with some passages that transport us to the desert and ancient Egypt, always inspiring peace through his compositions. He is now in Brazil working on his third romantic CD.
