Performer Conductor Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The Schumann concerto was recorded live at the Berlin Philharmonie in December 2002; the Grieg concerto was recorded in the studio. The result is an achievement worthy of its place in Andsnes's impressive discography. Most recently his recordings of the Grieg Lyric pieces and his Schubert Sonata/Lieder recordings with Ian Bostridge have met with wide critical acclaim and continue to be steadily selling tiles.

Gramophone Magazine
However many times he has performed the Grieg, Andsnes retains a freshness and expressiveness that never sounds contrived, always spontaneous..., Andsnes is firmly supported by Jansons and the Berlin Philharmonic, with playing not just refined but dramatic too
