Guest Recital: Matthew Bengtson, fortepiano | WisCommunity


University of Wisconsin Eau Claire Events

Critically acclaimed as a "musician's pianist," Matthew Bengtson has a unique range of musical talents ranging from extraordinary pianist, to composer, analyst, and scholar of performance practice, and thus is in demand as both soloist and collaborator. An advocate of both contemporary and rarely performed music, he offers an unusually diverse repertoire, ranging from William Byrd to György Ligeti and numerous contemporary composers. He has performed concerts in France, Germany, Italy and Hungary, in Mexico, and at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall. He has performed as soloist with the Reading, Pottstown, Ridgefield and Bay-Atlantic Symphony Orchestras, and has appeared with violinist Joshua Bell on NPR's "Performance Today" and XM Satellite Radio's "Classical Confidential." His recordings can be heard on the Roméo, Arabesque, Griffin Renaissance, Albany, Navona, and Musica Omnia record label.
