complete keyboardworks by CJL Almqvist.

In 1972 he established with Kristine Scholz a piano duo, with focus on modern classics
and contemporary music. Many composers have composed directly for the duo.

Since 2012 Mats Persson also perform as a clavichordist with contemporary works and
music from the 17th and 18th century.

As a composer he is on one hand a ”composer/performer” whose music sometimes dwells
between improvisation and composition. On the other hand he has composed many works
for piano as well as for different chamber ensembles.

Furthermore he has collaborated with choreographers and he has written music for the
theatre.
