CD Reviews

Sublime!

"H. Jonkers basically said it all, so read that review :)

I just thought that I'd add my ruminations here for good measure. My only other experience with the Rach 3 is the composer's own recording on the RCA label, and I find it hard to listen to because of the tinny acoustics, which to me makes the playing sound distant and somewhat cold. There is indeed a "natural warmth" to Leif Ove's performance and he plays with both honesty and clarity. Together with Berglund and the orchestra, they bring out nuances that I had not heard before.

The etude-tableaux are a nice bonus. I am always impressed by Leif Ove's articulation of the notes and ability to exercise control over what seem like frenzied compositions. One gets a better sense of what the composer might have been trying to say.

High caliber pianism!

"Leiv Ove Andsnes is nowadays, one of the most intelligent and imaginative pianists in the international stages. He possesses that peculiar gift of feeling, thinking, expression and lyricism that impress his performances of gratifying results. This performance is one of the most remarkable that I have ever heard in the last two decades.

So, given his youth, I hope for him not only my best wishes, but in a very recent future, he amazes the musical world with his enormous talent. His Rachmaninov is emotive, honest, passionate but never over romantic or over indulgent ; as a matter of fact his personal approach has enriched still more the affective universe of this peak of the romantic repertoire.
