Janne Mertanen

“Janne Mertanen is a unique voice in the sea of pianistic talent in this world.  His interpretations have original perspectives, amplified by stunning virtuosic technique,  inspiring spontaneity and masterful musicianship.  A Sony Classical Artist, his recordings of Chopin and Sibelius present a rare pianistic lyricism and stylistic integrity.  Currently recording the complete works of Chopin, the program for London will include Chopin and music from Finland.  We are thrilled to bring Janne from Finland to gift London with a rare opportunity to hear his live music in Canada.  This concert is not to be missed!” Clark Bryan, Executive and Artistic Director, The Aeolian

Pianist Janne Mertanen studied at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, where his teachers included Erik T. Tawastjerna and Dmitri Baskirov. He then completed his studies with Lazar Berman at the Accademia Pianistica in Imola, Italy.

Mertanen came to the attention of the wider musical public in 1992 with a win in the International Chopin Competition in Darmstadt, Germany. In the same year he won the first price also in the Nyborg Nordic Competition. Janne Mertanen has had orchestra engagements in South America, Asia and in Europe. In March 2010 he made his South American debut as the soloist of the Schumann Piano Concerto with the Orchestra of the National Theater of Brazil conducted by Ira Levine. In 2014 he made his soloist debut in Japan with Tokyo New City Orchestra. Recital appearances have taken him around most of the European countries, Canada, America, Australia and Asia. He made his debut at the Wigmore Hall in London in October 1994 with a programme of works by Chopin.
