Critically acclaimed as a "musician's pianist," Matthew Bengtson has a unique combination of musical talents ranging from extraordinary pianist, 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 offers an unusually diverse repertoire, ranging from Byrd to Ligeti and numerous contemporary composers.
