Regurlary acclaimed by the international specialized press, Rebeca Oliveira is a Portuguese classical guitarist.
As Bradford Werner stated:
“I really appreciate her solid performances filled with great technique, rhytmic drive and refined musicality. Her phrasing is so nicely balanced and well delivered.”
In December 2021, Rebeca Oliveira released “Carlos Seixas – Sonatas”, an album where she recorded her own transcription of the Portuguese composer’s sonatas. This album is the result of the interest in the music of Portuguese baroque composer Carlos Seixas (1704-1742) that led her to start in 2017 the cycle “Carlos Seixas for guitar”, a series of transcriptions for classical guitar of this composer’s sonatas. In this context she released the scores of her transcriptions in the Canadian publishing house Les Productions D’Oz.
In October 2020 Rebeca released her first album “Home”, a tribute to her native Madeira Island.
