Bookmark and Share

Pianist Leif Ove Andsnes has released an album featuring solo piano music of the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Sibelius composed fewer than 20 works for the piano, and his orchestral music is far better known. With this album, Andsnes explored all of Sibelius's piano music in search of pieces that he thought were most representative of the composer's style. According to Andsnes in the press release, "I really, really believe in this music, and I want people to hear it. I feel like I'm on a mission here!"
