Denmark’s Politiken reviews Leif Ove’s recital in Copenahgen and the new Beethoven CD release

“Interpretations are sharp, dynamic and intimate. But also breathing, subtly nuanced and explosive when it should be. The Orchestra and pianist are certainly on the same wavelength on this new CD, and Andsnes never overemphasises – something which was also clear in his solo recital Friday night at Mogens Dahl … Even when compared with the famous Pollini and Abbado recording on Deutsche Grammophon from the mid-1990s, there are places whre Leif Andsnes resolves the music better … Leif Ove Andsnes is one of today’s greatest pianists.”
