Notes & Reviews:

"This two-CD set dips into the Andsnes discography over the last decade to offer a representative portrait of this marvellous pianist. We have the Grieg Concerto with which he made his debut, the First Shostakovich for strings and trumpet and his elegant Haydn D major, whose finale is a model of wit in his hands..." ***** -BBC Music
