A double concert with young and established artists.
The New York Times has called Leif Ove Andsnes 'a pianist of magisterial elegance, power and insight'. With his impressive technical skill and innovative interpretations the renowned pianist has won worldwide acclaim.
He is the principal mentor of the Crescendo programme, which connects young musicians with experienced performers in concerts and in a series of personal and musical encounters throughout the year.
In two concerts in Troldsalen Leif Ove Andsnes will lead violinists Sonoko Miriam Welde and Johan Dalene through a varied programme with cellist Andreas Brantelid and pianist Gunnar Flagstad.
Bergen-born Sonoko Miriam Welde, whose mother is Japanese, has a close personal connection with her violin and has delighted audiences in Norway and abroad for several years. When Swedish-Norwegian Johan Dalene won a major international competition in USA last summer, an adjudicator commented that he had waited sixty years to hear Tchaikovsky performed in that way. The two young violinists will celebrate harmonic and rhythmic freedom together in several Bartók duets. The rest of the programme involves the mentors and the heroes of tomorrow in a variety of combinations.
