Per Tengstrand is one of today’s most exciting pianists and already a legend in his native Sweden. For this unique solo recital he will perform works chosen specifically for three of EMPAC’s grand pianos: Salonen's Dichotomie on the deep clarity of the Bösendorfer, a selection of Ravel’s Miroirs on the delicate precision of the Fazioli, and Liszt’s Apres une lecture de Dante on the massive sound of our Hamburg Steinway.

Per Tengstrand regularly performs with orchestras in Gothenberg, Malmö, Helsingborg, Stockholm, Tapiola, with the Huarod Chamber Orchestra, and Swedish Radio Orchestra. He has appeared as soloist with the Orchestre National de France, French Radio Orchestra, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Orchestra National de Lille, National Symphony of Taiwan, Singapore Symphony, New Japan, and Osaka Philharmonic Orchestras. As recitalist, he has performed internationally in such venues as Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Zurich’s Tonhalle, Paris’s Salle Gaveau and the Nice Opera House, as well as in Geneva, Bordeaux, Bergen, Norway, the Montpellier Festival, Poland’s Chopin Festival and Tokyo’s Suntory Hall.
