Fortepiano at Wheaton


Critically acclaimed as a “musician’s pianist,” Matthew Bengtson has a unique combination of musical talents ranging from extraordinary pianist, to composer, analyst, and scholar of performance practice, and thus is in demand as both soloist and collaborator. An advocate of both contemporary and rarely performed music, he commands a diverse repertoire, ranging from William Byrd to György Ligeti and numerous contemporary composers.

For much of my youth, my primary interests were chess, golf, and music. Music has become my profession and takes up the bulk of this site, but there is something to be said here about the others, including one you may recognize in this image.
