Following two sold out concerts with the Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Leif Ove Andsnes is gearing up this week to reunite with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra for a European tour and recording sessions.

Together they will record the Emperor Concerto and Choral Fantasy live in concert in Prague before making their third annual appearance at the Bergen Festival on 23 May.

The new recording will be released by Sony Classical in September, marking the completion of The Beethoven Journey on disc and launching a year of residencies: Leif Ove and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra will perform the complete Beethoven Piano Concertos in residence in Bonn, Hamburg, Vienna, Lucerne, Paris, New York, Tokyo and London through the 2014 – 15 season.
