Piano Recital with Leif Ove Andsnes

Leif Ove Andsnes feels a special bond with Ludwig van Beethoven: “He speaks to people from heart to heart,” says the pianist. In his Piano Sonata No. 31, Beethoven moves the listener with a multitude of emotions, from meditative intimacy to exultant ecstasy. The other items on the programme are also heartfelt: Antonín Dvořák describes romantic images of nature in his Poetic Tone Pictures, Leoš Janáček the tragic death of a worker at a demonstration in his First Piano Sonata, and Alexander Wustin the song of a bird during a funeral in his Lamento.
