Seen and Heard International reviews Leif Ove’s piano recital at the Barbican in London

“Leif Ove Andsnes is one of those rare pianists who seem to be able to play absolutely everything.  I remember listening to him at the Proms many years ago giving a stunning performance of Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto and I formed the view then that he was a brilliant Romantic interpreter.  Since that time I have listened to him giving outstanding performances of works by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Grieg, Schumann, Bartók and Prokofiev.  In short, everything to which Andsnes directs his attention turns to gold and this concert was to be no exception.”
