Richard Hellgren is a Swedish pianist living on an island in the Baltic Sea called Gotland. His pieces are minimalistic, contemplative and poetic in character.
Sometimes a bit melancholy. Most of his recordings are made on his old malmsjö upright piano:
"In my home i have an old upright piano (from ca 1910). It has moved with me everytime I move and has really become like a ragged old friend. I have earlier been hesitant to record it beacause the sound is a bit rough and you always get unwanted sound of the mechanics in the piano. Recently I´m starting to see the beauty of imperfection. Perhaps when you can enjoy the singularieties and imperfection of people and things it is also easier to see the beauty in yourself and accept yourself as you are."
His first EP Ainigma (june 14 2019) was released on the New York label Sonder House. In october 25 he made his second release on the same label with the EP Felt Transience.
