The fourth International Contemporary Piano Meeting will take place on December 12-14 2019 at the School of Music and Performing Arts (ESMAE/IPPorto, Portugal) in affiliation with the the Graduate Program in Music of the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG, Brazil). Established in 2016, the event will provide a forum for the discussion of the contemporary piano repertoire in both musicological research and creative practice. Now in its fourth year, this gathering aims to connect researchers, composers and performers through reflected debate; bring together experienced scholars/musicians and early-career researchers/performers; promote a discussion of recent developments in contemporary piano creation and performance of new repertoires.

In addition to a broad range of performance practice and research topics on piano music from the last 50 years until the present, particular emphasis this year will be placed on the Portuguese composer João Pedro Oliveira (1959), on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday. Concerts, workshops and round tables will highlight the various facets of his artistic production, and its impact on Portuguese and Brazilian music.
