Erik Thomas Tawaststjerna (pronounced Ta-va-sher-na), the son of the famous Finnish pianist and musicologist Erik Werner Tawaststjerna, was born in 1951 in Helsinki but began his musical education by taking private lessons in Moscow from Henrietta Mirvis, a well-known Soviet pianist.
He has graduated from the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna and the Juilliard School in New York and holds a doctorate from New York University.

In 1990 he gave a special concert for Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko of Japan at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo.
He has made numerous recordings, including eight CDs of complete piano works by Jean Sibelius.
He has been working as a professor of the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki since 1982. A number of his students have won top prizes at international piano competitions, while several of them have already become professors themselves.
Erik T. Tawaststjerna is a frequent guest at various piano competitions worldwide, from Vilnius to New York, where he works as a member of international jury.
