About

Leif Ove Andsnes’ last release of rare Sibelius piano works was universally acclaimed by critics worldwide. Now comes a release of very popular solo piano works by Chopin. The album includes all four famous Ballades interspersed with shorter Nocturnes. Leif Ove Andsnes intentionally inserted the Nocturnes between the Ballades to serve as a ‘breather’ to the epic nature of the Ballades. In doing so he breaks with the tradition of performing and recording the ballades as a cycle. This recording is a long-held dream come true for Leif Ove Andsnes. He wanted to record the Ballades ever since discovering them as a teenager and instantly falling in love with them. These epic works have accompanied him and his career ever since. This is his first recording of Chopin works in 25 years.
