“It is a four-year journey with Ludwig van Beethoven – 144 concerts in 22 countries. Leif Ove Andsnes, who conducts the Mahler Chamber Orchestra from the piano, plays all five piano concertos of the great composer, who lost his hearing so tragically. But Beethoven’s deafness was not the end of his music making. As a companion project to thier four year Beethoven Journey, Leif Ove Andsnes and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra have devised as a companion project – a special project for children: alongside concerts across the globe, they have given workshops for the children who have hearing impairment or who are deaf and never heard a sound in their entire life. But, as Leif Ove Andnses comments – “they can feel the music”.
How do they do this? “TTT” joins the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and Leif Ove Andsnes in Bergen for the latest “Feel the Music” project.”
