The 2015 Portland Piano International Summer Festival will occur June 18 - 21, 2015 at Lewis & Clark College. 

Hosted by Artistic Director Arnaldo Cohen, Portland Piano International’s Summer Festival is an invigorating retreat for mind, body, and spirit. On the welcoming campus of Lewis & Clark College, immerse yourself in all things piano!

This year we salute the genius of the legendary Sviatoslav Richter (1915-1997). A favorite of contemporary composers Prokofiev, Shostakovich and Britten, Richter’s supreme artistry lives on in the Russian piano tradition.

At the 2015 Portland Piano International Summer Festival, explore Richter’s legacy in a stimulating array of piano-centric lectures, master classes, films, workshops and recitals. Guest artists include documentaryfilmmaker Bruno Monsaingeon (Enigma, his defining portrait of Richter), Busoni Competition winner Alexander Shtarkman, Van Cliburn Gold Medalist Stanislav Ioudenitch, and many others.
