After launching his 2014-15 season with the San Francisco Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas (Sep 10–13), the pianist returns to the Los Angeles Philharmonic at Disney Hall, where he and Gustavo Dudamel bring their three-season Beethoven cycle to a climactic conclusion with renditions of the “Emperor” Concerto and “Choral Fantasy” (Oct 9–12). On hearing Andsnes play Beethoven’s First with the same forces, the Los Angeles Times noted: “His playing is exuberant. … He listens to the players and enters into dialogue with them. … There were marvelous intimate moments.” When they reunited for the Second and Fourth last season, the same journal found that “the two Beethoven concertos were in masterful hands.” more information here:
