After solo South American tour, Leif Ove collaborates with Marc-Andre Hamelin, Matthia Goerne, Berlin & Vienna Phiolharminics, and Boston Symphony: By way of an upbeat to the 2016-17 season, this month Leif Ove Andsnes embarks on his first solo tour of South America. Performances in Brazil, Chile, and Argentina will showcase the same “thoughtfully varied recital program” (New York Times) of Sibelius, Beethoven, Debussy, and Chopin that drew raves in Europe and North America, prompting the Washington Post to name him “one of the finest musicians working today.” In the coming season, he reprises a similar program at dates in Japan and South Korea; joins fellow pianist Marc-André Hamelin for an extensive U.S. and European recital tour of music for two pianos; and reunites with baritone Matthias Goerne for complete trios of Schubert song cycles in Paris and Brussels. He also looks forward to a number of high-profile concerto collaborations, performing Rachmaninoff’s Fourth with orchestras including the Berlin Philharmonic and Boston Symphony; Schumann’s Concerto with Japan’s NHK Symphony; and Mozart’s 20th with the Vienna Philharmonic and others, pairing it with Mozart’s 22nd on a European tour with the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra.
