After his return to Brazil, he became director of the Magda Tagliaferro Foundation in São Paulo and Cultural Coordinator of the Brazil-United States Cultural Institute. He was involved with many musical projects including a festival of the music of Camargo Guarnieri, a Magda Tagliaferro Festival, a Brazilian music history project and, among his many recordings, an album of Brazilian composers and also his piano solo arrangements of Tom Jobim. In 2005, the French pianists Katia and Marielle Labèque performed the première of Tom Jobim’s Chovendo na Roseira, which led to the first of a series of new arrangements for two pianos written by Fábio Caramuru. With the bass player Pedro Baldanza, he formed the Duo Caramuru/Baldanza and the two musicians have also worked with the singer Magda Painno, using classical, jazz, popular and even folkloric.
Among his most recent appearances are a Concert with Minas Gerais Philharmonic Orchestra (Stravinsky), Symphonic Brass Orchestra of São Paulo (Tom Jobim), São Paulo University Symphonic Orchestra(Poulenc) and Jazz Symphonic Orchestra, playing, with this last one, special arrangements of Nino Rota’s and Richard Rodgers movie soundtracks; the concerts with the singers Fernando Portari and Magda Painno; his double-CD Piano - Tom Jobim por Fábio Caramuru, to celebrate the 80th Tom Jobim’s anniversary and his innovative and acclaimed CD Bossa in the Shadows, with the remarkable contribution of the bass player Pedro Baldanza. In November 2010, Caramuru made a Brazilian Music Recital in Toronto (Victoria Chapel / Toronto University) and a Brazilian Jazz Show at Zinc Bar in New York City. In 2011, an European tour includes two concerts with Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra in Belgium and shows at JazzStation in Brussels and at Jazz Club Moods in Zurich. Read more on Last.fm.
