About the program: When Hans Pålsson visits the Klosterkyrkan, he invites the audience on a journey through the ages from Bach, chronologically up to the present. The pieces that are performed are separate pieces that have thus not been composed as movements in sonatas and the like, but have a touch of "fantasies", originating in improvisation.

Artist biography

Hans Pålsson, the pianist, is one of Sweden's most famous and appreciated concert pianists with a long list of successes both in Sweden and internationally.

He has played as a soloist with conductors such as Rafael Frübeck de Burgos, Evgenij Svetlanov, Sixten Ehrling, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Okko Kamu, Neeme Järvi, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Mario Venzago, Paavo Berglund and others.

He has a great breadth in his repertoire from Bach to the present with great emphasis on classicism, i.a. all sonatas and piano concertos by Mozart and Beethoven.

In the winter of 2010, Hans Pålsson played all of Beethoven's 32 piano sonatas at 8 sold-out concerts in Stockholm's Konserthus over two and a half weeks.

Over 60 solo works and piano concertos have been dedicated to him and he is an ambassador for the new music.

He is richly represented on LP and CD and has recorded around 25 CDs with works from all eras.

In the TV series "In the company of dead masters" where he played and talked about composers and their works, he reached out to a large part of the Swedish people. In these 30 TV programs he also showed his great skill as an educator and enchanted viewers and listeners of all ages.
