Savannah Music Festival LIVE 448 – Leif Ove Andsnes

To describe a classical pianist as thoughtful, modest and dedicated to his craft would almost make him/her seem unexciting. Yet those traits aptly describe one of the most commanding and consummate pianists of our time, Norwegian Leif Ove Ansdnes. In February of 2012, Mr. Andsnes played with exhilaration, creativity and elegance during a recital produced by the Savannah Music Festival as part of the off-season concert series, SMF Live. In this program, we’ll listen to highlights of the recital including Haydn’s rarely heard Sonata No. 33 in C minor, three pieces from Debussy’s “Images” Book 1 and several works by Chopin.
