The Los Angeles Times reviews Leif Ove’s performance of Beethoven 5 and The Choral Fantasy at Walt Disney Hall
“Three years ago the Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes began a “Beethoven Journey,” a four-year project devoted to performing and exploring Beethoven’s music for piano and orchestra. He has toured and recorded the five piano concertos and Choral Fantasy, conducting the Mahler Chamber Orchestra from the keyboard.
“The pianist has also partnered with others, including Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. On Thursday night at Walt Disney Concert Hall, they reached the last segment, the Fifth Piano Concerto (“Emperor”) and the Choral Fantasy.”
