Mafalda Nejmeddine has a doctorate from the University of Évora in Music and Musicology in the specialty of performance, specialising in Portuguese early music, namely in the Portuguese sonata for keyboard instruments. She has a Complementary Course in Piano (Academia de Música S. Pio X, Vila do Conde), a degree in Harpsichord (Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa), 1st Prize in Harpsichord (Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris-CNR) and an MA in Childhood Studies – specialisation in Music Education (University of Minho). She developed a series of projects which involved the investigation, performance and dissemination of the 18th century Portuguese repertoire for keyboard. Among these we find the preparation of a manual for the Basic Harpsichord Course with Portuguese repertoire from the 18th century, the study of the keyboard sonata in Portugal during the period 1750-1807, the recording and edition of the score of the collection Sei Sonate per Cembalo by Alberto José Gomes da Silva, as well as giving recitals and lectures with inedited works of the Portuguese keyboard repertoire of the second half of the 18th century. Currently, she devotes herself to the research, analysis and performance of Portuguese music with keyboard instruments from the 18th and 19th centuries.
