Reviews

It was with the Grieg Concerto that Leif Ove Andsnes made his concerto debut in 1990 on the Virgin label. This new version, recorded live in Berlin, is just as spontaneous-sounding, with soaring flights of imagination, while the Berlin Philharmonic is at its warmest under Mariss Jansons; his virtuosity is commanding, but it is never at the expense of tenderness and poetic feeling. The Schumann too brings glorious playing from both soloist and orchestra, with both offering warm, clear sound; in short, this is a gramophone classic for the present decade.
