Pianist Emma Johansson obtained her master’s degree from the Royal College of Music/Edsberg in 2017. That same year, she continued her education in the advanced continuing studies programme, also at the Royal College of Music/Edsberg, under professor Mats Widlund and professor Mats Zetterqvist. This is her diploma concert.
For several years, Emma Johansson has regularly appeared as a chamber musician in Sweden and abroad. In addition to concerts in Asia and Europe, she has guest performed at events including the Båstad Chamber Music Festival; “Music Between Feathers” in Hudiksvall; the Helsingborg Piano Festival; Gothenburg Piano Festival; Trelleborg Piano Festival; and the Tengstrand Festival in Växjö. She has also performed the solo in Kapralova’s Partita for Piano and String Orchestra with the Edsberg Chamber Orchestra under the baton of Mats Zetterqvist. In addition, she has appeared as soloist in Robert Schumann’s Piano Concerto and Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23, and in spring 2019 she will perform Stenhammar’s Piano Concerto No. 2.
She has received scholarships from, among others, the Royal Swedish Academy of Music, the Anders Sandrew Foundation, Bertha Neubergh Foundation, Willinska Foundation, Kempe-Carlgrenska Foundation and the Freemasons in both Stockholm and Gothenburg. In 2016 she was also awarded the Fredrika Bremer Music Scholarship.
At this diploma concert, we will hear her in Mozart’s tenth piano sonata, one of his most popular. She will also perform Robert Schumann’s expressive and masterful second piano sonata. After intermission, she will perform Armenian composer Arno Babajanian’s dramatic yet emotionally charged and beautiful piano trio.
