For its own characteristic, the piano almost always needs of the accompaniment of other instruments to add a better plasticity to its sound. The piano is a percussion instrument, such as the bell, where the hammer percuts the string producing the sound. When it’s playing alone, Daniel Perola developed and improved a solo style in popular music. He pressures his left hand, doubling the chords using the pedal with an special work and then extends the sounds and add the rhythm causing in scene the impression that there are Two or more pianist playing together. That’s a fascinate result. Unmissable.

See some comments:

There are moments in the life that they become marks. As the first experience is to face with the brilliant idea of somebody, as a Vicente van Gogh, Goya, Gougin, Rembrandt, Leonardo of Vinci and so many others wonderful masters. The humanity has a lot of those geniuses in all the human activities. But Brazil also has them. We didn't need to cross Oceans, to cross borders, to convince us of that and to pass for that magnificent experience. We have brilliant artists right here. There are representations in theaters, for instance, like a Paulo Autran, like a Fernanda Montenegro, like a Glória Menezes, as on her last stage in " Journey for a Poem ", that nobody attends with impunity. That mark sensation, also happens when we come across with the pianist like Daniel Pérola with a brilliant idea. It is impossible to feel same sensation to the previous moment.
The Musical sensibility of Daniel Pérola is on his force, harmony, arrangements and everything. When Pérola is playing more they make to think us that are in front of a whole orchestra. But, not. They are only two hands, sliding on the ivories, extracting the soundest and beautiful sounds. It is just the artist burning your inside fire. A fire that never extinguishes, that gets angry and it grows to each note, in each song of the classic of the Brazilian popular music. Or, still, in your own compositions as in Knight of the Tomorrow. Besides the musicality, there is the poetry of the letters, of Daniel and of so many other national geniuses. Who didn't have, still, the pleasure to hear him, should not lost it. Daniel Pérola is more than an artist, he is pure magic. It is light source.

Dear Derek,

It is a great pleasure to work with his Company. I have for habit to think well before contracting a professional. But after I contract I leave that he develops its work. Above of everything you are American and the main market for my COMPACT DISC and the
others that I will record, is the USA. Being thus, I trust on his common-sense to indicate the best ways to market my COMPACT DISC. I would appreciate your advices in how to proceed better to divulge and sell it.

It is difficult to make a comparison between my work and others Artists. What more it is come close, is Richard Cleiderman. But I play alone and he plays with an Orchestra of 20 elements. My style is unique. I make Melody, Harmony and Rhythm. I developed in these 49 years of studies, a different way to play piano. The people think that it has more than one Pianist playing. As I play alone, I put much emotion and I commove peoples, who many times cry. I have many testimonials of people who says about may playing with much emotion, hearing the COMPACT DISC.

I was the Pianist of the Transatlantic Pacific in season 2007/2008. This is the only ship that has authorization to travel for Fernando de Noronha, that is an Archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean at 800 km from the Brazilian Coast and it’s very controlled for the Brazilian Government because it is an Ecological Paradise and shelter of many sea species. The Pacific only can disembark there for being small, only 650 passengers.

Who heard me and bought the COMPACT DISC transmits me emotions very deep.
See 2 examples:
"Lack words to me to really describe how hearing you, it dreams without sleeping. I had the happy opportunity of beyond hear you, to see you and to receive from your blessed hands your COMPACT DISC and autographed, when in the trip to Fernando de Noronha, in the PACIFIC in beginning of March, 2.008. I continue dreaming in hear it, despite in the solitude of my room, when we can to sleep balancing for your hands Daniel, only privilege of who also is composer and in the silence of the night between me and the solitude, I use to advantage a little more the company of the inspiration, especially when we are packed by your hands that indirectly touches us tenderly. I still wait to have the chance to make a trip as that one and that you still can be ahead of that white piano swinging our souls in high sea.
I love hear you.
Thanks and I desire to you more and more success.
Kiss in your sonorous heart,
Isabelle Mara "
Dear friend Daniel PEROLA,

You have accompanied of all good moments of our lives now, and even influenced our steps. To say that we miss a lot, would be a common place. Your COMPACT DISC is wonderful, but nothing it brightens up the lack of your friendly presence. To remember old musics, dreams and adolescent souvenirs so deep of ours marriages and lives
in the Pacific, "it does not have price".
Keep all our affection.
You can not imagine the happiness that you really made for us.
Dear friend, you are part of our lives! You are part of our best moments.
You will be always in our heart.
Until very soon!
All our friendship.

Elias, Inacia, Lili and Valci.

I was also Pianist of the Hotel Sheraton Bal Harbor in Miami Beach, since 06 of January of 1994 up to 31 of December. I am Professional Pianist has 27 years and I already played in the most important Houses in Sao Paulo (3# biggest city of the world).

The Piano

“Among the acoustic instruments, certainly the most modern and the most complete, for your polyphony and significance, is the piano.
That direct descendant of the Clavichord and the Harpsichord, as well as these, it is used as more practical and efficient control, that is the keyboard.
The piano is, any doubt, a monument of the technology applied to the music.
In each piece, exists scientific development and a meticulous study of the material.
The piano gets to join in only one instrument the polyphony, the significance, the sensibility and the sonority.
It can be observed in the movement of the action mechanism of the hammer an extremely complex technique, that makes possible different forms of action on the strings,
and allows several sonorities.
And all this is controlled easily by the keyboard. Therefore, the piano stood out of the others, occupying a position of great importance in the scenery of the acoustic music.”

(From the book "Midi - Basic Guide of Reference" - Miguel Balloussier Ratton)


The winning pianist Daniel Perola gives larger shine to MPB

After being, in two modalities, among the finalists to receive the Saul Trumpet Award 2003, the artist from Sao Paulo makes new projects for this year

Sao Paulo – To the almost 60 years old, the pianist from Sao Paulo Daniel Perola doesn't calm. After coming in the most different cultural spaces of the Brazil´s South in the last three years, and to participate of the show for the delivery of the “VI Bem Eficiente” Award , created by Stephen Kanitz, that indicates the 50 better beneficient institutions
of the country, in administration, finances and quality of the results, at Sao Paulo, Perola was also in the relationship of the suitable ones to receive the VII Saul Trumpet Award 2003, for two categories: Instrumental and CD - Demo. In 2004, he made larger plans.

On this year, Daniel Perola occupies the most varied cultural spaces of the capital of Sao Paulo. He already came in concerts in the José Lewgoy´s Cultural Space, in the Friends Association of the Modern Art Museum and in the Theater of Sao Paulo`s Transitory House of the Spiritist Federation. All this, without neglecting of your CD new projects for this year.

It was 49 years spent in music, partitures, arrangements experience and life, in Brazil and out it, Daniel Perola walks against the history. In the period when the large humanity part just thinks to be retired, he keeps walking to your result, collectioner of dreams, life and job projects, he keeps improving more and more your professional perfomance. Lots of different people had the opportunity to appreciate his ecletic talent, rare in this world, because he is one of some solo pianists.

Owner of an eclectic repertoire, where the most beautiful musical compositions consist, in special of Brazilian Popular Music and American Popular Music, Daniel Perola already made shows in the most different Brazil and the United States stages, where he presented in New York, New Jersey and Florida´s auditoriums.

Out the Brazil, Daniel Perola improved one of his special characteristics. As solo pianist, he places greater force in the left hand and working in a special way the pedal, he extends the musical sounds of the instrument. A characteristic that differentiates him from the majority of the national and international artists and extends each time more its captive public already for the brilliantism of the spectacles.

“Pure magic”, it informs who already had the opportunity to attend the Perola´s concert from Sao Paulo one. Of the artist's eclectic repertoire they consist anthological music like “Eu Sei que Vou te Amar” (of Vinícius de Moraes and Tom Jobim), “Andança” (Danilo Caymi, Edmundo Souto and Paulinho Tapajós), “Ronda” (Paulo Vanzolini), “Por Causa de Você” (Tom Jobim, Dolores Duran), “Minha Namorada” (Carlos Lyra) among so much other, as “Cavaleiro do Amanhã” (Knight of the Tomorrow), of your authorship.

The mentioned compositions are part of the first Compact Disc that the artist concluded to be launched in the next months. A disk that began to be born when Perola still lived in the United States, in New York and Florida. In the occasion, the artist thought about coming back to Brazil to playing the roots of your earth to the piano.

Uneasy, the artist already thinks about the project of another COMPACT DISC. Perola thinks about offering the great public, extracting what it has of more beautiful in serenades and contry musics of the country. "It is necessary to hear and to follow the trends of the land, but without losing of sight the good taste and common-sense. Music will be always music, as well as modernity never will be able to modify the beauty of a rose ", he thinks.

In your adventures for the Sao Paulo State´s small cities, Daniel Perola came in the last times in the Roberto Palmari´s Cultural Center, in Rio Claro, city that is part of the net of “Mercosul – Mercocities” through where they reproduce and rebound the effects of the globalization of the world more easily.

When Daniel Perola is playing the piano “it is always a show, simply, extraordinary”, that detach the critics. “After all, the artist's repertoire is of pure musical seduction”, it assured the vice-director of Sao Paulo`s University - Unesp -, Joyce Mary Adam de Paula e Silva, after attending one of Perola´s concerts, in Rio Claro.

Last year, Daniel Perola became separated among concerts for the State Sao Paulo`s small cities and for the South of the country. Composer and international pianist, the person from Sao Paulo Daniel Perola conquered the public from “Paraná” in shows in the Theater of Paraná Spiritist Federation (FEP), “Teatro do Paiol” and in the “Memorial de Curitiba”, for which there are already negotiations for a new show.

In your last presentations in the capital of Parana, playing the classic of the Brazilian popular music for an eclectic public, Perola enchanted from children to adults that dared to face a lot of rain and the hard cold night of Curitiba, in the months of winter. The talent of Perola deserved, in all your presentations, a public's applauses in foot.

In each one of them, was difficult to arrive at the end of the show, such the number of encore requests. In one of your last concerts, after the 11 September, the pianist rendered a homage to the victims of the terrorism in New York, playing “New York, New York”. It was an only sinergy. From the audience, a citizen, sensitized by the delicacy of the moment, asked to do a gratefulness, " to the artist's talent and the beauty of the show, on behalf of the audience ". A Daniel Perola´s concert is the public's opportunity we have an unforgettable encounter with one of the best interpreters of the Brazilian Popular Music.

But makes a mistake who thinks that Daniel Perola’s repertoire extinguishes in Brazilian Music. To give larger shine to the party of the effective solidarity, Of Kanitz (Kanitz & Associates), in Sao Paulo, Perola opened the solemnity with the presentation of the themes more the classic composers, like Chopin, Schubert, Beethowen and Lizt.

Therefore, get ready. Plus than the path of an entire repertoire of the Brazilian Popular Music and classic there is a man's history that dedicated all your life to the study of the piano. It is that narrative that is evidenced when it is attended Daniel Perola's show, a solo pianist , with own shine.

Testemonials about CD


Daniel, after some days, for absolute lack of time, finally I heard the CD and I liked a lot.
But the what more impressed me it was as my son Jr, 7 years old, liked the CD.
How does it is possible, so small, so youth, to like piano music so much?
Constantly he tells me: “Father, plays the CD of that old one bearded”, and he enjoys.
He likes to sleep hearing your CD.
Good luck and a lot of success!

Roberto de Carvalho - São Paulo / SP (Engineer and Entrepreneur)



I like your CD too much. Do you know where he is? In the disk box of my car. It is my favorite one.
In my constants trips, your CD brings me an immense peace and it re-does me spiritually.
Congratulations and always call me back.

Djalma Lacerda–Campinas / SP (Lawyer, 2nd. time President of the Brazil´s Bar of Lawyers - Campinas - SP)



Yesterday I especially had one day tense here in the Association. A lot of meetings in the morning, delicate subjects involving
associated and many administrative problems.
What do you know I did in the afternoon?
‘almost erase' your CD! I played it three followed times!
It brings an immense peace, it relaxes, and it helped me to think, to connect the ideas and to work in the computer.
Congratulations, Daniel. I am your fan.

Rui Jorge (Vice-president of the São Paulo´s Justice Association of Workers)



Daniel, I gave your CD for my mother.
She loved, she loved, she loved, she loved, I not have words to explain as she was happy.
Incredible. She constantly plays and she always thanks me for the gift.
It is a good sensation, we give a gift for someone and the person likes it a lot.
And you can imagine, I made such happy my mother with some dollars.
Kisses, and a lot of success for you.

Chistina Cielo - São Paulo / SP ( Model and promoter)


Dear Daniel:

Congratulations for the CD. It is sensational!
It has been enjoying some hours of our days here in Kanitz.

Leila Lorenzi (Director of Kanitz & Associated)


It is a feather that few adjectives exists to express it that you
get to transmit with your music!
Besides a fantastic technique, your sensibility jumps in each note and it explodes in each chord. It is difficult to choose the best, because " to raze blocks ", your repertoire is divine.
The emotion took care of me and your CD tells stories and... the history of the own life, letting to come to the tona memories and no matter how paradoxical it seems, an immense longing of the future!
The vigor of the left hand doesn't become you the “left-handed pianist";
at least, I would say, " the ambidextrous " pianist or, who knows,
" the pianist octopus " !
Truly delirious, my friend, Danny giant!
In "Modinha ", I dropped my defenses. I love everything of Sergio Bittencourt (in fact, they already said the old ones, that the fruit doesn't fall far away from the tree, Mr “Jaco do Bandolim” that says it!)
After so much time of a conversation by Internet, today I got to discover, through your music, the reason of your name. Pérola (THIS WORD IS THE SAME THAT “PEARL” IN ENGLISH) plays a part in the mystic center. It symbolizes the sublimation of the instincts, the espirit of the matter,
the transfiguration of the elements, the brilliant term of the evolution and the intellectual light of the heart.
You are that, Daniel, an illuminated person, that came to the world to spread beauty and peace through of that divine talent. It is like me, a privileged person for the capacity
and opportunity to hear you.
Thank you very much! Your friend's musical kisses,
today more admirer than ALWAYS!
