Notes and Editorial Reviews
“A pianist of magisterial elegance, power and insight.” – New York Times
Celebrated Norwegian pianist, and 2013 Gramophone Hall of Fame inductee, Leif ove Andsnes continues his exploration of Beethoven’s complete piano concertos with The Beethoven Journey: Piano Concertos Nos. 2 & 4. Like the first title in the series, Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 3 - which won the iTunes Best Instrumental Album of 2012, the new album was recorded with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and directed from the keyboard by the pianist himself. The Beethoven Journey: Piano Concertos Nos. 2 & 4 is timed to coincide with Andsnes’ upcoming all-Beethoven solo recital tour highlighted by an appearance at New York City’s Carnegie Hall in March.
Andsnes will continue his Beethoven journey with the release of Piano Concerto No. 5 & Choral Fantasy in 2015.
