Leif Ove Andsnes

Overview

Leif Ove Andsnes, “one of the most eloquent and incisive keyboardists of our time” (Chicago Sun-Times), frames Beethoven’s transcendent Op. 110 sonata with two jewels of the Czech repertoire. Dvořák’s 13-part cycle ranges in mood from the dreamlike to cheerfully folkloric, while Janáček’s sonata pays tribute to a worker who was killed during a protest in 1905.
