Legato - World of the Piano: Roland Pöntinen
Couperin - Rameau - Busoni - Saariaho - Chopin - Albéniz - Rachmaninov - Ravel
We live in the renaissance of the piano. Musicians with a passion for virtuosity and a willingness to expand their repertoire have made the piano popular again. In addition to the usual classics they perform formerly scorned works or they discover neglected composers. LEGATO is a series dedicated to four fascinating pianists - their individual approaches, their fresh ideas and their music. Today in the focus: Roland Pöntinen, the pianist and composer from Sweden. Works by François Couperin, Jean-Philippe Rameau, Ferruccio Busoni, Kaija Saariaho, Frédéric Chopin, Isaac Albéniz, Sergei Rachmaninov and Maurice Ravel.
