Federico Britos

There is no greater proof of the universality of jazz and classical music than that which embodies the career and life work of Federico Britos. This titan of the violin, who is as equally adept within the world of jazz music as he is in the classical realm, has built a solid reputation throughout the Southern Hemisphere of the Americas.

Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Federico began playing violin at age five. George Boulanger, Rumanian violinist, while touring in Uruguay, premiered one of his musical pieces “Capricho Uruguayo”; Federico was eleven years old at that moment.
