A native of Finland, Petteri Pitko studied harpsichord at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, with Huguette Dreyfus in Paris and with Mitzi Meyerson at the University of Arts in Berlin, from which he graduated with Honours.
As a soloist and chamber musician (among others as a member of the prize-winning trio "U3"), Petteri Pitko regularly performs in Finland and Germany as well as many other European countries. He is a member of the Finnish Baroque Orchestra and often works as a guest with the Ostrobothnian Chamber Orchestra and the Ensemble Resonanz, Hamburg. In 2009, he was appointed to teach Chamber Music and Harpsichord at the NOVIA University of Applied Sciences in Vaasa, Finland.
Other concert engagements have taken Petteri as far afield as Korea and the Canary Islands and he has performed at many international festivals, such as the Musica Festival in Strasbourg, the Ultraschall Festival Berlin, the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in Finland and the Tongyeong International Music Festival in Korea. His special interest is the performance of 20th and 21st Century music for harpsichord, his performance of Ligeti's legendary work for solo harpsichord "Continuum" being one of the highlights of the Ultraschall Festival in 2012. He has given the first performance of many solo and chamber music works by such composers as Misato Mochizuki, Sarah Nemtsov, Yoav Pasovsky, Sebastian Elikowski-Winkler, Perttu Haapanen und Sebastian Fagerlund.
