Wednesday 26.2 at 5pm at Arkadia: ‘Chopin – The complete Mazurkas (part 1)’ by pianist Martin Malmgren

Dear friend of Arkadia,

You are invited to ‘Chopin – The complete Mazurkas (part 1)’ by pianist Martin Malmgren on Wednesday 26.2 at 5pm at Arkadia (Nervanderinkatu 11).

In three concerts at Arkadia, pianist Martin Malmgren performs some of the most beloved works of the piano repertoire – the complete Mazurkas by Frédéric Chopin.

The Mazurkas took their cue from several Polish national dances – mazurek, oberek and kujawiak – and were the genre Chopin most often returned to throughout his career. These concerts include all Mazurkas published during Chopin’s lifetime, and a selection of posthumously published ones.


Warm regards,

Entrance is free but a donation of €3 (or more!) for the bookshop to fund the event is suggested and would be most welcome. If you have no loose change or coins we gladly accept payment via Visa Electron or Mastercard etc.!

About the artist

Pianist Martin Malmgren has made himself known as a versatile performer, equally at home on stage as a recitalist, concerto soloist, and chamber musician. With an unusually wide repertoire ranging from early baroque up until the music of our times, he takes delight in surprising his audiences by performing unjustly neglected works and composers, in addition to the standard repertoire. Always aiming at finding meaningful connections between different composers, his concert programs typically show a thoughtful approach which builds bridges between different musical styles and periods. Martin is also founder of the Key Discoveries piano recital series in Helsinki, and more recently, he founded the Helsinki Chamber Orchestra together with conductor James Kahane and concertmaster Aku Sorensen.
