Janne Mertanen, Piano Recital
Sunday, March 23, 2014 - 7:00 PM
Roswell Cultural Arts Center

Janne Mertanen was the winner of the International Chopin Competition in Darmstadt, Germany and the Nordic Piano Competition in Nyborg, Denmark, both in 1992.

”Mertanen has a still rare ability to make the music hover, but the finely-etched contrasts and tensions draw out layer after layer...".
Helsingin Sanomat, Jukka Isopuro
