Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra: Leif Ove Andsnes plays Beethoven


‘Arresting maturity, stylistic acumen and utter delight' (The Daily Telegraph) combine in Leif Ove Andsnes's performance of Beethoven's last piano concerto, the Emperor. Following his multi-award-winning recording of the work, the Bergen-resident pianist returns to the Grieg Hall for this performance with Chief Conductor Edward Gardner. Beethoven's revolutionary musical tendencies had a huge influence on Carl Nielsen, the Danish composer who became intensely interested in the idea of a symphony as a struggle between good and evil along Beethovenian lines. Like Beethoven's, Nielsen's Fifth is his symphonic masterpiece - a work of startling originality and huge emotional power. Edward Gardner continues his Nielsen cycle here after the Norwegian premiere of Identity Documents in C major - an exquisite, delicate canvas for orchestra by Swedish composer Rosali Grankull, a finalist in the Orchestra's Pauline Hall Competition.
