JUHO POHJONEN 2018-2019 Season Highlights

Celebrated as one of Finland's most outstanding pianists, Juho Pohjonen has received widespread acclaim for his profound musicianship and distinctive interpretations of a broad range of repertoire from Bach to Salonen. His interpretations are known for their intensity, thoughtfulness, and fearless musical conviction.  Highlights of his 2018-2019 season include concerto appearances with the Nashville Symphony and Bay Atlantic Symphony, performing Mozart’s Concerto No. 23, K 488, and Brahm’s Piano Concerto with the Pacific Symphony and Duluth-Superior Symphony Orchestra.  In recital, he debuts at 92nd Street Y in New York, and appears at the Lane Series of the University of Vermont and Music Toronto. 

"Everything about his recital was formidable. One reason his debut demanded attention was that his adventurous program made news from first (a rhapsodic Fantasy in C minor attributed to Mozart but completed by Maximilian Stadler) to last (two stunningly difficult works by the Finnish composer and conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen). Mr. Pohjonen gave a bracing account of Bartok's daunting Sonata (1926), sailing through the propulsive final movement. He gave breathtaking performances of both works. When the audience broke into an ovation, the young pianist finally cracked a slight smile." — The New York Times
