The Brass Junkies: Fernando Deddos

Andrew Hitz

Listen via


Lance and I recently had the honor of chatting with our dear friend Fernando Deddos for The Brass Junkies podcast. We met Fernando in May of 2010 when we attended the Tatui Brass Festival in Tatui, Brazil.

Fernando performed a recital that left both of our jaws on the floor. And then it turns out that he is one of the kindest, most giving human beings I've ever met in my four decades. He is a world class euphonium player, composer, and teacher.

He is breaking ground for the euphonium in his native country of Brazil and is leaving a mark on the musical world like few people his age have done. I count myself lucky to be able to call him a friend.

You'll love this episode! We talk about traditional Brazilian music, barbecue, and a whole bunch of brass.
