La Jolla Music Society to feature pianist Juho Pohjonen April 14

La Jolla Music Society continues this Season’s Discovery Series with the First Prize Winner of the International Young Artists Concerto Competition, Juho Pohjonen, at the Auditorium at TSRI on Sunday, April 14, at 3 pm.

One of the brightest young instrumental talents to emerge from Finland, Pohjonen has attracted great attention as one of the Nordic country’s most intriguing and talented pianists. Widely praised for his broad range of repertoire from Bach to Salonen, his interpretations are known for their intensity, thoughtfulness and fearless musical conviction.

The New York Times calls him an “exciting new talent” who performed “thrilling accounts of two fiendishly difficult works” at his American debut at Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall. His La Jolla Music Society debut performance will feature works by Mozart, Grieg and Nielsen.

La Jolla Music Society enhances the concert-going experience by presenting “Preludes” –    pre-concert chats and performances – prior to each performance. San Diego Youth Symphony students will perform at 2 pm.

Concert tickets are $5-$30 and are available through the La Jolla Music Society box office, (858) 459-3728 and online at www.LJMS.org.
