Mahler Chamber Orchestra
Leif Ove Andsnes
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
The New York Times called Leif Ove Andsnes “a pianist of magisterial elegance, power, and insight.” Playing and conducting from the keyboard, Andsnes brings these qualities to his performances of Beethoven’s piano concertos. Landmark works, the concertos bridge the Classical and Romantic eras. Beethoven infuses his Second Concerto with a zesty exuberance that would have made Mozart smile, while the Third and Fourth concertos storm and sigh before their genial rondo finales.
