www.classicalsource.com reviews Leif Ove Andsnes’ first London performance in his LSO Artist Profile Series

“The key of the concert was D-minor, and Leif Ove Andsnes directed the ominous opening of the Mozart with urgent, anxious syncopated rumblings and launched into a performance that emphasised the unsettled, even angry dimensions of this work, inflected by passages of deepest melancholy. This was all a magnificent rendition, of Beethovenian strength, with expressive power pushed to the limits but always within the bounds of elegant proportion. It has rarely been brought off so well.”
