“If we needed proof that exciting new talent is in the pipeline, there was the marvelous American debut of Juho Pohjonen,” declared the The New York Times. Since his U.S. debut, the talented Finnish pianist has garnered a reputation for giving performances that crackle with intensity, displaying his flawless technique and fearless musical conviction over a wide array of repertoire. Pohjonen’s versatility will be on full display for his Meany Center debut, with a program of works that span the Baroque, Classical and Romantic eras.
It was quickly apparent that Pohjonen has both impeccable technique and a clear-eyed approach to music, unleashing the fugue with stunning clarity and precise dynamic control.
