About this event

For Porto Pianofest’s 6th edition, we introduce the Artist Residency Series, aimed at young pianists who come to Porto to prepare for future projects— recitals, competitions, recordings— to work with artist faculty and present their music to PPF’s audience.

These are young virtuosi with brilliant careers ahead of them. Come meet and support the Artist Residencies participants by attending the live streaming of their performances.

Aliya Turetayeva was born in Almaty, Kazakhstan and has appeared on several occasions as a soloist with the Chamber Orchestra and State Symphony Orchestra at the State Philharmonic Hall and at the Kazakh Concert Hall in Almaty. After graduating from the specialized music school, Aliya was accepted into the Dresden University of Music at the age of 16.

Two years later, she moved to Cologne and continued her studies at the Hochschule fuer Musik und Tanz Köln as a student of Professor Pavel Gililov.

Aliya was a prizewinner at the Feurich International Competition in Vienna, at the Concert Artists International in New York (2nd Prize and Outstanding Performance Award), 3rd prizewinner at the Verao Classico Festival in Lisbon, Portugal and finalist at the Osaka
