Juhani Lagerspetz

Juhani Lagerspetz made his debut with orchestra when he was just 13, when he played as soloist with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra in Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto. He had begun his piano studies in his home town of Turku, and he then studied at the Sibelius Academy and the Leningrad Conservatoire. He has been highly successful in competitions (first prize in the Ilmari Hannikainen in 1975 and the Maj Lind in 1976). In 1982 he won a special prize in the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Lagerspetz has collaborated with several major conductors, such as Arvid Jansons, Rudolf Barshai, Paavo Berglund and Esa-Pekka Salonen. In chamber music he has worked with the likes of Ida Haendel, Arto Noras and Truls Mørk. He has accompanied lieder singers Elisabeth Söderström, Stephen Genz and Camilla Nylund. In addition to playing dozens of piano concertos, Lagerspetz has performed in ambitious series of concerts, and has made numerous recordings for radio and international record companies.
