[Canceled] Finnish Pianist Juho Pohjonen
Finnish Pianist Juho Pohjonen, called one of the brightest young instrumental talents to emerge from Finland, will be the featured artist in Steinway Society —The Bay Area’s 25th Anniversary Season April concert.
The concert, held Saturday April 18, 2020 at 7:30 p.m., will take place at San Jose Woman’s Club in San Jose. A pre-concert talk starts at 6:45 p.m. The artist will meet with audience members following the concert.
Pohjonen has won numerous prizes in international competitions and received widespread acclaim for his profound musicianship and distinctive interpretations of repertoire from Bach to Salonen. In 2009, Sir Andras Schiff chose Pohjonen for Germany‘s Klavier Festival Ruhr Scholarship, including a prestigious invitation to play at the Festival.
The New York Times says of his playing, “…alluring, with watery runs and milky colors amid bouts of pummeling chords.”
Pohjonen began his piano studies in 1989 at Helsinki’s Junior Academy of the Sibelius Academy, and subsequently earned a Master’s Degree at the Academy in 2008. He performs widely in Europe, Asia, and North America.
“…pearly tone, articulate touch and supple legato phrasing…His sensitivity in unfurling Chopin’s intimate musical grammar was always evident.” --Chicago Tribune
