Pianistic magic and intriguing variety from Gramophone Hall of Fame honoree Andsnes

Prepare yourself for the perfect combination of seemingly effortless virtuosity, penetrating insight, and emotional nuance as the Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes takes the Terrace Theater stage. Last seen by a Washington Performing Arts audience in 2017 in the company of fellow keyboard titan Marc-André Hamelin—in what the Washington Post celebrated as “a Grand Slam match of crack pianists”—Andsnes returns for an intimate and wide-ranging evening of solo works by Beethoven, vaunted Czech composers and 19th/20th-century contemporaries Dvořák and Janáček, and the more rarely performed 20th-century Russian composer Alexander Vustin.


JANÁČEK - Piano Sonata 1.X.1905
ALEXANDER VUSTIN - Lamento (1974)
BEETHOVEN - Piano Sonata No. 31 in A-flat Major, Op. 110
DVOŘÁK - Poetic Tone Pictures, Op. 85 (complete)
