Karlskrona International Piano Festival with Peter Jablonski

Karlskrona International Piano Festival brings world-class international pianists to perform in the beautiful setting of the historic city of Karlskrona.


6-9 November 2019
Karlskrona International Piano Festival brings world-class international pianists to perform in the beautiful setting of the historic city of Karlskrona. The festival will embrace different themes, celebrating composer anniversaries, musical styles, countries, or historical events, and promoting the works of Swedish composers and international women composers.
Each festival will be opened by the host of the Festival, the celebrated Swedish pianist Peter Jablonski.
The organisers of the festival believe that music and art are democratic. Talent for music does not depend on gender or nationality.
We aim to encourage young women composers and performers in finding their places in music profession.
Events will take place in two iconic Karlskrona venues, Karlskrona Concert Hall and Marinmuseum’s Galjonshall.

This concert will open with the performance of rarely heard pieces by the Swedish female composer Valborg Aulin, followed by a world premiere of a new work by Iranian composer Farhad Poupel, and passionate and beautiful pieces by Liszt, Chopin, and Schumann, played by Peter Jablonski and one of South Korea’s internationally most successful and beloved pianists, Julius Kim.

Celebrating Peter Tchaikovsky (1840-1894)
One of Russia’s most famous composers of all time, Tchaikovsky died tragically on 6 November 1894—125 years ago. To commemorate Tchaikovsky’s life, this concert will open with a performance of the beautiful suite for piano where each of the twelve pieces are dedicated to the months of the year. This suite is seldom heard in its entirety, so this is a rare opportunity to hear it complete, presented by the dynamic Slovenian pianist Ermin Tkalec.
In the second half of the concert we will hear one of the most beloved piano concertos of all time (and one of the most difficult ones) played by 19-year-old Jack Campbell with Peter Jablonski providing the orchestral accompaniment on the second piano.
