About the concert

Sweden's foremost concert pianist presents a tailored program in Artipelag's new immersive art experience, Imagine Van Gogh. Pöntinen performs music by composers such as Ravel, Debussy, and Satie, all of whom inspired Van Gogh. Enjoy a dynamic fusion of Van Gogh's artistic vision and live music by Pöntinen.

"Someone who can really play the piano is, it seems to me, a mighty person. He starts playing, and an audience enjoys it all evening. A painter must be able to do the same thing".
