Notes & Reviews:

Leif Ove Andsnes has long been renowned for his powerfully emotive and disciplined performances of Rachmaninov - attributes prized by the supreme composer-pianist himself. This 2-CD set brings together the award-winning 2004 recording of Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 2 and Grammy Award nominated (Best Classical Instrumental Solo) 2010 recording of Piano Concertos Nos. 3 & 4. Internationally acclaimed conductor Antonio Pappano and the London Symphony Orchestra support Leif Ove Andsnes in this complete cycle of acclaimed concerto recordings. Praised by The New York Times as "A pianist of magisterial elegance, power and insight," Leif Ove Andsnes has recorded over 30 discs for EMI Classics. His repertoire spans from Bach to the present day. Leif Ove Andnes has also been nominated for nine Grammy's and awarded many international prizes including four Gramophone Awards to date.
