Savannah Music Festival LIVE 519 – Chopin Special feat. Leif Ove Andsnes and Nikolai Luganksy
Though he lacked the sheer power of many other keyboard artists in his day, Polish-born pianist Frederic Chopin more than compensated with his impeccable virtuoso technique and inspired musicianship. He incorporated the beauties of Italian opera into his piano compositions and performances, making them notable for their clarity of articulation, singing tone and flowing legato. In this episode, we listen to a wide variety of Chopin’s work, performed by three featured artists from three different Savannah Music Festivals: American Garrick Ohlsson, Russian Nikolai Lugansky and Norwegian Leif Ove Andsnes.
