biography

Audiences and reviewers have described Sandra Mogensen’s playing as heartfelt and mesmerizing, bold and brave, yet exquisite and delicate.

Pianist Sandra Mogensen is equally at home in two worlds: performing as a solo pianist and co-performing with singers in recital. She has played in concert in both capacities in Canada, the United States, Denmark, Latvia, Norway, and Austria.

Since 2006, Sandra has specialized in the music of Edvard Grieg and other Northern European composers, resulting in the release of a trilogy of recordings of the Piano Music of Edvard Grieg on the Chestnut Hall Music label.

Sandra focuses on creating performances and curating programs that engage the audience through innovative programming ideas, a range of varied repertoire and deeply felt expressiveness, sensitivity and passion. Her recital programs and her recordings carry the listener on a journey through contrasting musical styles and/or characters, while maintaining a satisfying unity and flow throughout.

In addition to the traditional repertoire Sandra is drawn to the music of recent and living composers, as well as jazz and the art of improvisation. She is excited to be currently developing programming ideas in order to reinvent and reinvigorate the recital format and heighten the listener’s experience of connection, relevance and meaning. Exploring the use of visual elements and improvisation, reorganizing the typical recital structure and reexamining conventional recital practices form the basis of this evolving work.
