As Founding Director of Norway’s annual Rosendal Chamber Music FestivalLeif Ove Andsnes curates and performs at the fourth edition this summer. Paying tribute to Dmitri Shostakovich, who went by the musical signature “DSCH,” the 2019 festival comprises nine concerts, a two-part exhibition, and multiple lectures and pre-concert talks in the idyllic Norwegian village of Rosendal, where Andsnes, “one of the most gifted musicians of his generation” (Wall Street Journal), will be joined on stage by a stellar roster of guest artists (Aug 8–11). The Norwegian pianist also looks forward to Mozart concerto collaborations with the Munich Philharmonic (June 5–7) and Czech Philharmonic(July 5), followed by a return to London’s BBC Proms for Britten’s Piano Concerto with Edward Gardner and the BBC Symphony Orchestra (Aug 1).
