“Andsnes has entered an elite circle of pianistic stardom. When he sits in front of the keyboard..., extraordinary things happen.” — Jeremy Eichler, The New York Times
With his commanding technique and searching interpretations, celebrated Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes will hold the Chenery audience spellbound as he performs Nielsen, Sibelius, Schubert, Widmann, and Beethoven.
A pre-concert talk by Zaide Pixley, Kalamazoo College (retired), will be held at the Chenery Auditorium Reception Room at 7:00 PM (free for ticketholders).
