Notes & Reviews:

Leif Ove Andsnes embarks on a major project which marks a new departure for the internationally acclaimed pianist. Together with South African-born visual artist Robin Rhode, they have created a special program entitled 'Pictures Reframed' which centers on Mussorgsky's epic piano cycle 'Pictures at an Exhibition' combining music, video and still imagery. Taking inspiration from Mussorgsky's work, Robin Rhode created the digital animation 'Promenade" in 2008, which shaped his vision of a fresh and constantly changing interplay between actor, drawing and musical narrative. EMI will release a special luxury collector's edition of 'Pictures Reframed', including both a DVD and CD packaged together in an exhibition catalog-style hardback book with a wide selection of images from the creation and final performance version of 'Pictures Reframed'. A standard CD is also available.

BBC Music Magazine
An intriguing attempt to marry the world of musical sound with that of visual imagery and, by implication, reach out to a wider audience than the classical hardcore. ... this collaboration between Leif Ove Andsnes and South African artist Robin Rhode presents a drastic reinterpretation of the score with moving images that have a far closer connection with the world of Soviet constructivism than that of 19th-century Realism. Traditionalists expecting to view something in line with the grotesque figures of Gnomus and Baba Yaga or hatching chickens may well be nonplussed by Rhode's abstract patterns of wires, printed fabrics patterns and a calliper compass. But other images such as the metal fence and barbed wire that accompany 'Bydlo' are stimulating and provocative.
