Pontus performs regularly as a recital pianist, at venues such as the Konserthuset in Stockholm, the Donizetti Theatre in Bergamo, the Palladium in Malmö and the Deutches Haus in Flensburg.
Pontus is also active as a chamber music pianist. He performs as a duo with cellist Kristina Winiarski and was the silver medallist in the Swedish International Duo Competition in 2017 – and winner of Sweden’s largest chamber music competition ‘Young and Promising’ in 2019.
During the season 2019/2020 Pontus will also collaborate with the Quartetto di Cremona, the Gävle Symphony Orchestra and the Treitler Quartet.
With cellist, Kristina Winiarski, Pontus has performed in the Lichtwarsaal in Hamburg, at the Classeek Winter Festival in Aubonne, Switzerland – and a recording of Swedish music for cello and piano will be released shortly.
