On Thursday, May 20, from 7:00 PM (EEST),you can listen to Roland Pöntinen in an extraordinary piano recital. The program contains works by well-known composers Beethoven, Fauré and Ravel. It is the first time when Roland Pöntinen has a recital at the George Enescu International Competition and Festival, as well as the first time when he is a member of the piano jury.

Since his debut with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic in 1981, Roland Pöntinen has performed with major orchestras throughout the world. He has been invited to many prestigious festivals including Schleswig-Holstein, Verbier and Mostly Mozart Festival, N.Y. and worked with conductors like Esa-Pekka Salonen, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, Evgeny Svetlanov and Leif Segerstam to name a few. Highlights include performances with the Philharmonia Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic in the Hollywood Bowl, with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as appearances at the London Proms where he has played both the Grieg Piano Concerto and the Ligeti Piano Concerto.
