Leif Ove Andsnes – Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, K. 466 – II. Romance

Piano for beginners No Comments »

Leif Ove Andsnes performs “Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, K. 466 – II. Romanze”.
Listen to the Mozart Momentum – 1785 here:

In 1785 and 1786, Mozart wrote a series of masterpieces reinventing the nature of the piano concerto. In this period, he began to re-examine the roles of the soloist and the orchestra, developing aspects of communication and dialogue between the two entities in a way that had not been heard before. Mozart Momentum 1785 is the first of two releases exploring those especially remarkable years in the history of classical music.
Following three cancelled tours, Leif Ove Andsnes and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra were finally able to meet and record the first album for this new project in November 2020. Although Covid restrictions meant that they had to record with social distancing measures in place and without audience, the experience of performing together again in the Berlin Philharmonie was very special. In interview with Gramophone Magazine, Leif Ove Andsnes said “I would quarantine for a hundred days to be able to do this project! I’ve learnt to really appreciate being in this kind of space – with a good piano, and with great musicians around me. I never realised how lucky I was. Now every project is a gift.’

Leif Ove Andsnes: Tiny Desk (home) Concert

Piano for beginners No Comments »

The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music’s Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It’s the same spirit — stripped-down sets, an intimate setting — just a different space.

Tom Huizenga | April 8, 2022

The Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes is binging Mozart. He’s just released his second double album in a row of the composer’s piano music, and for this very special Tiny Desk performance, he takes us inside Mozart’s own home in Vienna, just steps away from the medieval St. Stephen’s Cathedral and a couple blocks from a McDonald’s.

Mozart might have appreciated the convenience of the fast food chain, as the years he spent in this two-floor, four-bedroom apartment (from 1784 to 1787) were a non-stop frenzy of activities. Andsnes says the composer threw gambling parties, taught students and, above all, composed some of his most groundbreaking music in this house, including the two works heard in this recital.

Andsnes begins with four minutes of radiant joy and virtuosity. The D major Rondo showcases not only Mozart’s own skills as an unrivaled keyboardist, but also his genius as a composer with a bottomless bag of tricks to play with the music’s principal theme.

The following Fantasia in C minor, composed one year earlier, in 1785, couldn’t be more different. At three times the Rondo’s length, it begins in a foreboding tone, with heavy, darkly colored chords, sounding perhaps like Beethoven in a bad mood. But the clouds soon open to rays of sunshine in melodies only Mozart could create, including a recurring passage of intense delicacy and yearning, which Andsnes delivers with the sensitivity of a lover’s whisper. In its many fascinating mood swings, the piece feels like Mozart simply sat down in these rooms and improvised his mixed emotions. And thanks to Andsnes, we can catch a vibe of what that might have sounded like.

Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes performs Frédéric Chopin’s Ballade in G Minor, Op. 23, No.1. Recorded for his album “Chopin Ballades & Nocturnes”.
► Get the full album here:

“The first ballade is one of his most famous pieces, you can go to any music conservatory or university around the world, and you hear all these students practicing it. It has a sort of attraction to all pianists and it is understandable. It is just a perfect piano piece. It’s just a line, unison line, going up, both hands playing the same thing, not really a melody, nothing and little by little you get to some chords and suddenly a door opens and you have this unbelievably beautiful melody and it’s really memorable.” – Leif Ove Andsnes

Album release: September 7, 2018
