Federico Palacios stands today as one of the best Uruguayan clarinetists of his generation. A passionate soloist and chamber musician, Federico moves through different genres and styles such as classical and contemporary music, freestyle improvisation, Tango and Choro. An assiduous explorer of unknown works and composers, he has succeeded in the last years to expand his repertoire through exhaustive research. This has afforded him the ability to debut in each of his shows at least one piece of previously unrecorded material and influenced the release of his first album, “YviPiahu,” (New Land) which boasts the first historical recording of six pieces by Latin American composers. His accomplishments include three music degrees in Clarinet (Uruguay, France and Greece), two Juvenalis Awards, a Strasbourg Philharmonic Orchestra Award and several special mentions in his short, but impressive career. He studied with world renowned clarinetists such as Francisco Martino, Denis Tempo, Armand Angster, Richard Stoltzman and Stanley Drucker who described Federico’s first album as “Great recording!” Federico has performed as a soloist with orchestras in France, Germany, Luxembourg, Greece and Uruguay. He founded the “Notias” quintet, the “Balanco do Morro” quartet and the trio “Corda di Vento.” He has presented the world premiere of pieces for solo clarinet and clarinet with piano.
