In this opening concert, Tengstrand is joined by acclaimed musicians pianist Shan-shan Sun, violinist David Coucheron, and the Choral of the Swedish Church to perform

Hugo Alfvén’s Swedish Rhapsody for Piano Four Hands, Edvard Grieg’s Violin Sonata and songs for choir, and choral works by Jean Sibelius and Einojuhani Rautavaara.

A Tribute to Esa-Pekka Salonen

When Esa-Pekka Salonen asked Per Tengstrand to perform his piano work Dichotomie at the Salonen-festival in Stockholm, it was in a program that the Finnish composer and conductor had put together to show his influences and favorite works. This evening, a tribute to the Finnish master,

will use exactly the same repertoire! It is, needless to say, a beautifully composed program, with some of Salonen’s best works as well as music by Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel. A unique opportunity to get closer to one of the master musicians of our time.
