1924

  • Enthusiastic about his bright talent, professor Guilherme Fontainha has indicated his student Radamés for a concert at the National Music Institute, in Rio de Janeiro, on July 31st  [1]. The concert is a great success and the critics were full of compliments. Radamés is considered the great promise of Brazilian piano [2]. Fontainha, in a telegram to distant Porto Alegre, sums up, in just two words, the overwhelming success of Radamés in Rio de Janeiro: “Radamés Trimphant”.
