About

The celebrated Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes continues his multi-annual journey in collaboration with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, dedicated to Beethoven's five piano concertos. The recording series began with the live recording of the Piano Concertos Nos 1 & 3 at Prague Spring Festival in the historic Rudolfinum building, and is now followed by the Piano Concertos Nos 2 & 4.

Andsnes is not only playing the piano but also directing the orchestra. The Berlin based orchestra is one of the world´s most acclaimed touring orchestras, on the move approximately 200 days each year. The 45 core members of the MCO come from 20 different countries and live all over Europe.

This is something very special, and it marks an exciting debut for Leif Ove Andsnes on Sony [...]. There’s so much more to this than just exceptional playing; there’s a palpable sense of discovery, of living the music.” - Gramophone.
