Juho Pohjonen is regarded as one of today’s most exciting and unique instrumentalists. The Finnish pianist performs widely in Europe, Asia and North America, collaborating with symphony orchestras and playing in recital and chamber settings. An ardent exponent of Scandinavian music, Pohjonen’s growing discography offers a showcase of music by Finnish compatriots such as Esa-Pekka Salonen, Kaija Saariaho and Jean Sibelius.

Pohjonen began his piano studies in 1989 at the Junior Academy of the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, and earned a master’s from Meri Louhos and Hui-Ying Liu-Tawaststjerna at the Sibelius Academy in 2008. Pohjonen was selected by Sir Andras Schiff as the winner of the 2009 Klavier Festival Ruhr Scholarship, and has won prizes at international and Finnish competitions.

The pianist has previously appeared in recital at New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and in San Francisco, La Jolla, Calif., Detroit, Savannah, Ga., and Vancouver, Canada. He made his London debut at Wigmore Hall and has performed recitals throughout Europe including in Antwerp, Belgium; Hamburg, Germany; Helsinki; St. Petersburg, Russia, and Warsaw, Poland.

At the Weis Center, Pohjonen will perform: Grieg’s ballade in G minor, Op. 24; Ravel’s Gaspard de la Nuit and Chopin’s four ballades, Op. 27, 38, 47 and 52.
