Leif Ove Andsnes is committing himself to getting under the skin of Beethoven’s piano works with a mammoth tour over the next three years
Phillip Sommerich - 3 November 2012
Preview of Beethoven pilgrimage:
It is a well-trodden route with many familiar landmarks, but the Beethoven Journey Leif Ove Andsnes is undertaking will be slow and painstaking. The excursion began recently with the release on Sony of his recording of the first and third piano concertos with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, but it will be another year before the next instalment is released, with the culmination in 2014-15 seeing all five concertos plus the Choral fantasy released in a box-set. By then he will have performed the works at 150 concerts in 55 cities around the world (including Birmingham on 20 November and next March, and Liverpool in January).
