The Swedish pianist Daniel Propper returns to Oxford, fresh from his acclaimed debut at the Wigmore Hall earlier in the year, to perform works by Grieg, Ravel and Schubert.

This talented pianist, who now has a well-established international reputation, will be playing at the Holywell Music Room on Sunday at 8pm.

His concert will include a tribute to Grieg, with a lively performance of the composer's witty Holberg Suite Opus 40, written for the Norwegian writer Holberg. This will be followed by Ravel's Gaspard de la nuit, considered one of the greatest masterpieces ever written for piano.

The second half of the concert will be dedicated to Schubert's last sonata in B-flat major, which he wrote just two months before his death. Such is the impact of this piece when performed by a pianist such as Daniel Propper, it is said to "open up to a sublime beauty which goes beyond the limits of life itself".

Born in Stockholm in 1969 of a Swedish mother and a father of Viennese origin, Propper settled in Paris in 1994. At a very early age he began studying with the great Swedish pedagogue Gunner Halhagen and later worked with the legendary pianist Tatiana Nikolaieva, who encouraged him to perform the Goldberg Variations at the Salzburg Festival in 1990.

After spending a year at the famous Juillard School in New York, he obtained his soloist degree in 1993 at the Swedish Royal Academy of Music. He later studied with Bernard Ringeissen in France and them completed the two-year postgraduate programme at the French Conservatoire. His teachers there included Jacques Rouvier, Bruno Rigutto and Gerard Fremy.

During his sparkling career Proppter has won a great many awards and prizes. In 1990 he was awarded the biggest grant ever allocated by the Swedish Royal Academy of Music and first prize at the Kil International Piano Competition in Sweden.
