Leif Ove Andsnes piano
A recital with Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, whose playing has been termed ‘staggeringly beautiful’, ‘more than remarkable’ and ‘beyond pianistic.’
Accolades for Leif Ove Andsnes have been constant since his debut in 1987. Avid chamber musician, renowned champion of Grieg and regular on the highest calibre classical circuits for the last quarter of a century, Andsnes was the focus of the LSO’s 2015/16 Artist Portrait. In this recital, he demonstrates his affinity for his native Scandinavia and delicate talents for the swirling sound-worlds of Chopin and Debussy.
This recital was postponed from Friday 10 June 2016.
