Pi­anist in the house: Per Tengstrand

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The Santa Fe Pro Mu­sica Or­ches­tra, con­ducted by Thomas O’Con­nor, wel­comes back Per Tengstrand, so reg­u­lar a vis­i­tor that he prac­ti­cally qual­i­fies as the house pi­anist. A Swede liv­ing in New Jersey, he is a par­tic­u­lar pro­po­nent of Scan­di­na­vian reper­toire. When it comes to pi­ano con­cer­tos, that in­escapably points to Grieg’s en­try in the genre. Tengstrand and the Pro Mu­sica Or­ches­tra last pre­sented it here in Novem­ber 2012, and they will do so again at 4 p.m. on Satur­day, Jan. 23, and 3 p.m. on Sun­day, Jan. 24. The re­main­der of the pro­gram is given over to Beethoven’s Sym­phony No. 6, the Pas­toral. Both per­for­mances take place at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.). Tick­ets ($12-$69) can be pur­chased from Pro Mu­sica di­rectly (505-988-4640, Ext. 1000) or through the Len­sic (505-988-1234; www.tick­etssantafe.org).
