Beatrice Berrut

Closing Concert
Palácio da Bolsa | August 10 | 20h00

Swiss pianist and composer Beatrice Berrut has been called “an artist who calmly reveled in multiple layers of genius and beauty” by the Irish Times and a “standout in all categories, who gave electrifying accounts of Chopin and Bach’s works” (Cleveland Plain Dealer). Following Mahler’s statement “tradition is not the worship of ashes, but the preservation of fire,” she is a trailblazing artist who wrote a paraphrase on Arnold Schoenberg’s legendary work “Transfigured Night” which was saluted by the composer’s son and is now sought-after by the pianists community.

Making her Portuguese debut with Porto Pianofest in the iconic Arab Hall of the Palacio da Bolsa, Beatrice Berrut presents a fascinating program called “Abracadabra,” which includes transcriptions for piano of some of the orchestral world’s most important repertoire.
