Following a highly successful North American tour in January, pianist Juho Pohjonen will be embarking on another tour of North America and Canada which will see him perform chamber music concerts in Toronto, Philadelphia and Aliso Viejo on 4, 8 and 12 March. The programme will include Haydn's Piano Trio in E-flat Minor, Janáček's Pohádka and Violin Sonata and Dvořák's Piano Trio in F Minor. Juho’s chamber music partners are Canadian violinist Karen Gomyo and Swiss cellist Christian Poltéra, with whom Juho enjoys a frequent and successful collaboration.
Juho starts a series of recitals and chamber concerts across the US. The tour kicks off on 21 January at the St. Cecilia Music Center in Grand Rapids with the further performances in New York performing at the Recital Hall of State University of New York and Alice Tully Hall. The tour will take Juho further to Athens, Hudgson Hall and to Santa Fe where he will give recital at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival. The programme performed throughout these performances will include works by Arensky, Bartók, Fauré, Lutosławski, Mozart, Rachmaninov, Ravel, Schubert, Sibelius and Smetana.
In March Juho will return to the US in an “all Czech” programme including Janáček and Dvořák with performances in Toronto, Philadelphia and Aliso Viejo.
Juho performs with Buffalo Philharmonic under the baton of their Music Director JoAnn Falletta this weekend, celebrating the works of two leading Finnish composers, Grieg and Sibelius. Juho will perform Grieg’s much loved Piano Concerto in A minor, whilst the orchestra will perform Sibelius Symphony No.5 as well as Sebastian Fagerlund’s Isola at Kleinhans Music Hall.
