Christian Lindberg & Roland Pöntinen

Two top musicians celebrate 40 years of collaboration.

Christian Lindberg and Roland Pöntinen, two of our most noted soloists, are celebrating 40 years of musical collaboration! The programme consists of familiar, classic gems arranged specifically for these celebrations, in addition to this some of their own compositions. 

Christian Lindberg’s career is exceptional. He has been a key figure in establishing the trombone as a solo instrument on global stages – and in addition, he has contributed to renewing the repertoire with a vast quantity of music composed for him. He is at present also active as a composer and conductor. 

Roland Pöntinen is without hesitation one of Sweden’s leading and most experienced pianists. With insightful musicality, he cuts into the essence of the music and always moves equally comfortably through a repertoire spanning from the great classics to newly composed pieces.
