Viseu International Piano Competition

The competition has ended, and the winners are…

The final exceeded our expectations, the three pianists performed at a very high level, executing extremely complex pieces perfectly. The results were announced last night by Conceição Azevedo, Mayor of Viseu. According to Jorge Martins, Artistic Director of the Competition, the jury had no hesitation in their choice: Illia Ocharenko was the big winner of the 4th edition of the International Piano Competition of Viseu. The Ukrainian is awarded 8,000 euros and the opportunity to play at the 15th edition of our festival, as well as at the Sallet Cortot in Paris. Qing Li (China) is in second place on the podium and Nikolai Kutznetsov (Russia) is third. The jury also gave an award to Alexander Stretile, for standing out as the Best Portuguese in the competition.
The organisation thanks all the participants and we hope that, in the next edition, we may cross paths in Viseu.
