“Perhaps the most exquisite quality of Mejias’ playing is his ability to go inside the music and create his completely own sound world”

– Aamulehti

I am very anxious to give you my very high opinion on Anton Mejias, everyone has recognized his very special talent. Something in his Bach is very unique– not peculiar, just very natural and I think he could be remembered as one of the great Bach players of our time.”

– Gary Graffman

Finnish-Cuban pianist, Anton Mejias, born in Helsinki in 2001, has been described by Finnish newpaper Aamulehti as a pianist whose most “exquisite quality. . . is his ability to go inside the music and create his completely own sound world.” He made his recital debut at the age of eight, and has been lauded by both press and public for his performances in recital and with orchestras around the world.

From a young age, Anton Mejias was inspired and facinated by the music of J.S. Bach. By the age of ten, he had learned the entire Well-Tempered Clavier, Book I and he has since added to his repertoire the complete French Suites and English Suites, all six Partitas, as well as the Well-Tempered Clavier, Book II.

Anton Mejias has performed with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and with the Tampere Philharmonic, among other orchestras in Finland and abroad. He will debut in autumn 2022 with the Hallé Orchestra in Manchester under conductor Tarmo Peltokoski and with further international debuts in upcoming seasons.

Anton Mejias has performed with conductors including Tarmo Peltokoski, Klaus Mäkelä, and Lawrence Renes. He has won top prizes from the Viotti International Piano Competition and the Nordic Piano Competition.
