The Guardian reviews Leif Ove Andsnes’ first London performance in his LSO Artist Profile Series

“Sometimes, if you want a job doing you have to do it yourself. This was the first of the Artist Portrait concerts the LSO is putting on in London for pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, a repeat of the event that had opened the Brighton festival the day before. Both were to have been conducted by Daniel Harding but, with Harding ill, it fell to Andsnes himself to direct Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 20 … This was typically classy stuff from Andsnes – playing that didn’t draw undue attention to itself, and yet was far too nuanced and alive to be described as understated.”
