Martin Malmgren is a pianist based in Finland. As an active performer, he frequently performs solo recitals, collaborates with singers and instrumentalists, works with composers and surprises his audiences performing unjustly neglected works far outside of the standard repertoire. Always aiming at finding meaningful connections between different composers, his concert programs typically show a thoughtful approach towards building bridges between different musical styles and periods. Among upcoming concerts, he is performing with Prokofiev 5th piano concerto with SE Ensemble conducted by Santtu-Matias Rouvali in Temppeliaukio church on September 13th, Shostakovich 1st piano concert with St. Michels Strings conducted by Markku Laakso, and again Prokofiev 5th piano concerto with Lahti Sinfonia conducted by Dalia Stasevska, in February 2015.
