There is a new edition of the festival
Porto PianoFest has adapted to these times to hold the 5th edition of the festival live on the Internet and with two live concerts in Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia.
The event is free and takes place between the 1st and 8th of August.
There are about 70 international pianists who have been invited to send a recording made on purpose for this festival, of something that represented them as musicians.
In addition to these videos, released daily, on the 2nd and 3rd of August there will be a live concert streaming from Chicago and New York.
On the 4th, there will be a live conference with conductor Òscar Colomina i Bosch on orchestral conducting and his musical experience, which led him to direct the Queen Sofia Superior School of Music.
On August 7, the Rectory of the University of Porto hosts a face-to-face concert by young talents, with Nuno Ventura de Sousa and Hugo Peresa, two pianists from the city.
The festival ends on August 8, with a live concert by cellist Fernando Costa in Vila Nova de Gaia, in the new World of Wine.
Both concerts will be broadcast online.
