Sequeira Costa (b1929)

At the age of eight Sequeira Costa moved to Lisbon to study with one of Liszt’s last surviving pupils, the Portuguese pianist José Vianna da Motta. After the death of Vianna da Motta in 1948 Costa continued his musical education with Mark Hambourg in London, Jacques Février and Marguerite Long in Paris and Edwin Fischer in Switzerland. Costa was a laureate at the Marguerite Long-Jacques Thibaud Competition in Paris, and this marked the beginning of his international career. He settled in the United States, becoming professor of piano at the University of Kansas and in 1976 the Cordelia Brown Murphy Distinguished Professor of Piano. In 1956 he founded the Vianna da Motta International Piano Competition and in 1958 was invited by Shostakovich to join the jury of the first International Tchaikovsky Competition.

Costa has performed throughout the world. His debut in New York at Alice Tully Hall was in the 1979–1980 season and he gave a recital at Carnegie Hall in 1981. He has played with many orchestras including the London Symphony, Royal Philharmonic, Sydney Symphony, and Moscow Philharmonic; regularly gives master-classes and sits on the juries of many competitions including the Chopin Competition in Warsaw, the Leeds International Competition and the Rubinstein Competition in Israel.
