The New York Times reviews the last volume of the Beethoven Journey:
“With this new recording, the superb Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes completes his “Beethoven Journey,” a multiyear project capped by his recordings of the five Beethoven concertos with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. The last album in the series offers his vibrant, elegant, uncannily clear-textured accounts of the mighty “Emperor” Concerto and, joined by the fine Prague Philharmonic Choir, the episodic Choral Fantasy. Every note speaks in Mr. Andsnes’s distinguished playing. And he proves an insightful conductor, drawing comparably lucid and lively music-making from the excellent orchestra.” (Anthony Tommasini)
