Johannes Piirto is among the most interesting young Finnish pianists from the recent years. Along with being successful in competitions, Johannes has performed both in Finland and abroad. During the ongoing season he will have his debut performances with Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and the Ostrobothnian Chamber Orchestra, and has recently appeared also with the FRSO, Turku and Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as with Lahti Symphony Orchestra.

For Johannes, an essential part of music is composing and improvisation, and many of his works have been premiered lately: Virta (Stream) in the opening concert of the new Music Centre of Helsinki in 2011, Prolog for piano and orchestra in Ekenäs Summer Concerts in 2012 and Kaari at Hetta Music Festival in 2015.
