On Tuesday, Nov. 20 at 8 pm, catch a one-hour program featuring highlights from pianist Leif Ove Andsnes's solo appearance in The Greene Space. The sold-out event took place Sept. 22, and was webcast live on WQXR.org.
In this program, Andsnes performs Beethoven's Sonatas No. 21, Op. 53 (“Waldstein”) and No. 22, Op. 54, and speaks with host Jeff Spurgeon about his deep dive into the composer's music. The Norwegian pianist recently released the first installment of a new Beethoven piano concerto cycle with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, which he also conducts.
Here is the video archive of the performance:
