Norwegian pianist extraordinaire and man behind the acclaimed Beethoven Journey projects that heard him perform and record all five of the composer's piano concertos, Leif Ove Andsnes has been recognized for his prodigious talents as "one of the most gifted musicians of his generation" by the Wall Street Journal, and last year received an honorary doctorate from Juilliard, following his 2013 induction into the Gramophone Hall of Fame. Now touring the USA, he will head to Chicago with fellow pianist, Montreal-born Marc-Andre Hamelin for a piano-focused evening.
The four-part, one-off Chicago engagement will see the pair share duties for Mozart's Larghetto and Allegro in E flat Major, Stravinsky's Concerto for Two Pianos, Debussy's En blanc et noir and rounding off appropriately with Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring.This concert forms part of the annual Symphony Center Presents Piano series, which attracts the world's biggest piano virtuosos.
