August 1, 2020
As we all know, this year has been difficult in many ways, especially for the arts community. We feel that music, more than ever, is a refuge, a unifier, a way to sort out the mess of our inner thoughts, and more importantly, a practice that brings beauty amongst the chaos of our world.
Porto Pianofest has only been around for five short years; but in these years, our aim has been to bring together the music community, both globally and in Porto, to create beauty. Although 2020 may not be the summer we first anticipated, we are thrilled to bring this online edition to you— wherever in the world you may be!
Besides bringing new, exclusive content to you daily via our website, we have created a digital archive from pianists near and far for you to enjoy at your leisure even after the festival week.
To our 2020 artists, we thank you immensely for your time, generosity, and perseverance to keep making music. You have been an inspiration to our festival team as we work to move this online festival forward.
To all our viewers, please continue to support the arts. We need your help to keep presenting these talented artists.
To our festival family in Porto, we hope to be back with live concerts very soon.
