The Swedish pianist Lars Sellergren (1927–2008) studied with Olof Wibergh in Stockholm 1946–1952 and Bruno Seidlhofer in Vienna 1952–1954. In 1952 he received the Jenny Lind Award and also made his début as a pianist. He was an experienced piano pedagogue, teaching at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm from 1963 to 1993, becoming a titular professor in 1982. With violinist Leo Berlin and cellist Åke Olofsson he founded the Stockholm Trio (1957– 1986). From 1950 to 1967 he gave regular concerts including a very large number of radio and TV broadcasts. He was active in musicians’ professional organizations and in politics, among them as a member of the Stockholm County Council and on the board of Rikskonserter the Swedish Concert Institute). He took up broadcasting again in 1975 and returned to the concert platform. Lars Sellergren made his last radio recording in 1999 (Bach’s Das wohltemperierte Klavier), and in 2007 he held a Master class at the Örebro University College of Music entitled “Med musiken i centrum – om pianospelets hemligheter” (“Centred on th(e music – about the secrets of piano playing”).
