Roland Pöntinen piano

Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Fauré and Kreisler


  • Roland Pöntinen piano

Whatever the personal significance of Beethoven’s ‘farewell’ sonata, dedicated to his patron
Archduke Rudolph of Austria, its music evokes the emotions of departure, separation and reunion.

Roland Pöntinen’s Coffee Concert summons up strong traces of absent friends, past impressions and potent emotions, crowned by Rachmaninov’s utterly joyful arrangement of Fritz Kreisler’s Liebesfreud.
