Leif Ove Andsnes is currently in South America making his debut solo tour with performances in Brazil, Chile, and Argentina bringing audiences the same “thoughtfully varied recital program” (New York Times) of Sibelius, Beethoven, Debussy, and Chopin that drew raves in Europe and North America, prompting the Washington Post to name him “one of the finest musicians working today.”

Previewing his Sao Paulo concerts on 5 and 6 September Estado writes “In music, as in life, freedom is something you earn … Freedom – or the pursuit of it – is perhaps one of the most striking aspects of this pianist’s work. Not only in the way he approaches the composers who he plays, but in the way he organizes the program of his recitals.”
