Notes and Editorial Reviews

There's a stillness, a concentration about [Andsnes's] playing that is rare and unmistakable. It's the way he hears silence. He makes you hear it too. Listen to his Janacek disc - in particular, the pieces On an Overgrown Path and In the Mist. -- Edward Seckerson, The Independent [3/8/1996] There's a stillness, a concentration about [Andsnes's] playing that is rare and unmistakable.
