With his commanding technique and searching interpretations, the celebrated Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes has won acclaim worldwide, playing concertos and recitals in the world’s leading concert halls and with its foremost orchestras, while building an esteemed and extensive discography.
2020 may be Beethoven’s 250th birthday, but Andsnes has already taken the composer’s music to 108 cities in 27 countries over the course of a four-year journey.
His McCarter program is further indicative of his focus on both seldom-heard and familiar repertoire with works by Janacek, Bartok, and Schumann’s Carnaval, Op.9.
