Germany’s Financial Times gives a 5 star review to Beethoven

“Now what the fans of the already eight times Grammy nominated pianist have been waiting for: Finally, Leif Ove Andsnes, whose discography includes works by Johann Sebastian Bach to contemporary music, has recorded Beethoven … Transparency and richness are exercised here in Piano Concertos Nos. 1 and 3, which the Norwegian pianist conducts from the piano with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. Reflective, without any cheesy sentimentality, Andsnes outlines the slow middle movements and storms through the outer movements with intelligent and drivenarticulation, even at the craziest of tempos.”
