But on Thursday 18 April, Per Enflo performs as a musician. He is a renowned concert pianist who has performed and recorded numerous piano concertos and has performed solo and with orchestras all over the world.

Since his first solo piano recital at age 11, Per Enflo has been concertizing for almost 70 years on five continents. He has been praised for his sensitive interpretations of mainly the great classics, but also for his breadth and versatility as a soloist, chamber musician and accompanist. After many years in the US, he has now returned to Sweden.

Among his performances, current and from the last decades, should be mentioned a long-term collaboration with violinist Hristo Popov - with tours in the US and Eastern Europe, and a critic-acclaimed duo recital in Carnegie Hall, NY.

A long-term collaboration with Sofia Sinfonietta under Svilen Simeonov with numerous concerts and recordings should be mentioned. Last year, in 2023, Per Enflo performed, among other things, as a soloist in Mozart's 23rd piano concerto in Sofia, Bulgaria and as a soloist in Beethoven's first piano concerto, with Oltenia Philharmonic, Craiova, Romania.
