PARIS: Once again it was a pleasure to enjoy Leif Ove Andsnes recital concert at Theatre des Champs Elysees in Paris. Andsnes is touring with a brilliant program as it is 25 years since his debut. The Paris program included Haydn, Bartok, Debussy in the first part and the second half Chopin. In the first part Bartok was extraordinary.
A full concerthall at Theatre des Champs Elysees, including the ambassador from Norway Tarald Brautaseth, the former director from Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Lorentz Reitan, who is now preparing the 250 years Bergen orchestra Junilee, and others gave ovations to Andsnes, and he returned with three enchores, Chopin, Rachmaninov and Grieg (of course).
The concert was organized by Jeanine Roze productions.
Next recital at Theatre des Champs Elysees with Leif Ove Andsnes will be in 2012 April 5th. Presenting a programme by Beethoven, Liszt and Chopin.
