Leif Ove Andsnes - Sibelius is WFMT: Featured New Release

Bookmark and Share

Sibelius' solo piano music – too long in the shadow of his symphonic writings – is the focus of Leif Ove Andsnes' new recording. The album gathers together some of the Finnish composer's lesser-known gems that Andsnes uncovered while going through Sibelius' entire piano output. Andsnes says, "There has been such a feeling of discovery. Everyone was astonished that there can be a major composer out there with such beautiful, accessible music that people don't know. The fact that many will be hearing it for the first time, that's a wonderful feeling."
