Leif Ove Andsnes - Chopin


Chopin: Ballades & Nocturnes for solo piano by Leif Ove Andsnes, "a pianist of magisterial elegance, power and insight" (New York Times). Interspersing the Romantic master composer’s four Ballades – works immense in the range and power of their expression – with three of his nocturnes, the new album represents the Norwegian pianist’s first recording of Chopin’s music in more than a decade. "There were quite a few years where I didn’t play much Chopin. He felt complicated to me, and I was not at ease with him. Something has happened to me in the last ten years, I don’t know what it is, but now I experience his music as so unbelievably great, so unique a voice, much more than before. My relationship to this composer is much more intimate." - Leif Ove Andsnes
