Founder and Artistic Director, Carlscrona Chamber Music Festival in Sweden
Jablonski’s unique blend of Scandinavian introspection and Eastern European sensitivity, combined with an affinity for the extroversion and optimism of the 20th-century American repertoire, makes him a multi-faceted artist who brings freshness, panache and depth to the concert hall. With a career spanning over 20 years, Jablonski has performed and recorded with the world’s finest orchestras including the Philharmonia, BBC Symphony, Philadelphia, Los Angeles Philharmonic, La Scala Philharmonic and NHK Tokyo to name a few. He has collaborated with such distinguished conductors as Vladimir Ashkenazy, Riccardo Chailly, Myung-Whun Chung, Charles Dutoit, Valery Gergiev and Esa-Pekka Salonen among others.

Born in Sweden to Swedish and Polish parents, Peter Jablonski studied piano and percussion at the Malmo Academy of Music, and later piano and conducting at the Royal College of Music in London. At the age of nine he appeared at the `Village Vanguard` festival in New York receiving praise from the legendary Miles Davis. In his final year at the RCM Jablonski was invited by Vladimir Ashkenazy to record his debut disc with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for Decca, which launched his professional career.
Since his debut in Washington DC in 1992 and at the Royal Festival Hall in 1993, Jablonski has performed and recorded with the world’s finest orchestras including the Philharmonia, BBC Symphony, Philadelphia, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, La Scala Philharmonic and NHK Tokyo among others. He has collaborated with such distinguished conductors as Vladimir Ashkenazy, Riccardo Chailly, Myung-Whun Chung, Charles Dutoit, Valery Gergiev and Esa-Pekka Salonen.
His extensive discography on Decca, Altara Records and Octavia Records features award-winning releases and recordings of new works. Jablonski’s disc of Shostakovich, Rachmaninov and Lutoslawski with Vladimir Ashkenazy and the Royal Philharmonic went on to win the coveted Edison Award. His world premier performance of Wojciech Kilar’s Piano Concerto, a work written for and dedicated to him, received the Orpheus Award at the Warsaw Autumn Festival. His most recent recording of Liszt solo works on Octavia Records was awarded Disc of the Month in the Japanese Gramophone earlier this year.
Highlights of the past seasons include recitals at the London International Piano Series at the Queen Elisabeth Hall, Berlin Konzerthaus, Stockholm Berwaldhallen and Tokyo Suntory Hall as well as concerto engagements with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Seoul Philharmonic, Tokyo Symphony, and Mostly Mozart Orchestra at Lincoln Center New York. Last season Jablonski appeared with the Finnish Radio Symphony, Warsaw Philharmonic, Brussels Philharmonic and the Royal Philharmonic on tour in the UK, and in recitals in Tokyo, Brussels, Munich and Seoul. Forthcoming engagements include a recital tour in Japan, return to Warsaw for concerts at the Chopin and his Europe Festival with the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra and a debut with the Taiwan National Symphony Orchestra.
Recently Peter Jablonski has taken up conducting and last season he made a recording of Mozart and Beethoven concerti directing the Swedish Chamber Philharmonia from the keyboard.
A passionate chamber musician, Jablonski is the founder and Artistic Director of the Carlscrona Chamber Music Festival in Sweden.
