Helder Alves de Oliveira

2021 Dolphy Prize Winner – Professional Category

We are pleased to announce the 2021 winner of the Dolphy Prize, Helder Alves de Oliveira.

His work for oboe, bass clarinet and piano, Tesserae, will be added to the Alea Publishing catalog in early 2022. Watch this space for updates when the music becomes available.

As the composer describes the work in his artistic statement, “Tesserae is based on antithetic intertextual manipulations—a tool called Tessera— combined to filtering of pitches by specific pitch-class sets. This work applies the visual concept of mosaic to the musical field. Thus, tesserae, tiles used to create a mosaic, corresponding to distinct character moments, and the visual figure perceived in the mosaic corresponds to the musical work itself.
