 Replete Leif Ove Andnes November 25, 2012 By James Kendall (Kentfield, CA) See All My Reviews "Herein Leif thunders upon the piano, as Apollo might strum a kithara. The Best Of in the title connoteth not a dime-store assemblage; this is a tour-de-force. Andnes' performance is as sonorous as is his name, when properly-pronounced [Layf Oh-vah Ahnds-ness]. His Rachmaninov is balanced, pre-Hollywood Rachmaninov. With his countryman, Grieg's Wedding Day at Troldhaugen [trolls-mound]; if you attend with some imagination, you can perceive the sounds of bucolic trolls, at a polite distance, celebrating the nuptials! His Haydn reflects the master's wit, with reserve. The Shostakovich is rendered concisely; and nicely spiced by the inspiring, virtuous dexterity of Hakan Hardenberger on the trumpet. To those already enthralled by Leif Ove Andsnes, it is to rejoice; if one is not yet so, these 2-discs are a good entry for an adventurous stroll in a new and effulgent woods." Report Abuse
