Eliasson Artists welcomes concert pianist Carl Petersson

- Carl Petersson is a fearless, innovative pianist with superb skills. The Grand Piano CD [Naxos 2015] with Grieg's ideas for a second, and previously completely unknown scheduled Piano Concerto in B minor surprised everyone, especially me. It is composed and orchestrated in an unmistakable "griegsk" style of Helge Evju and will be a huge success. I am convinced that this will be a very fun and interesting cooperation, says John Nebel on Eliasson Artists.

- For me, it feels fantastic to start working with Eliasson Artists! A lot will happen and I'm really looking forward to all musicianship and all projects awaiting, says Carl Petersson, who is currently located in Toronto, Canada, to play above Piano Concerto. The work will have his its US premiere with Carl Petersson and conductor JoAnn Falletta and the Buffalo Symphony Orchestra.

Carl Petersson has an agreement that includes seven CDs with Naxos. The recording of both Grieg concerts became one of the label's best-selling records throughout 2015. In May another critically acclaimed CD was released, with early compositions by the Danish composer Per Nørgaard who recently received the great Ernst von Siemens Prize for his life's work.
