BEETHOVEN JOURNEY AWARDED PRIX CAECILIA
Belgian's most prestigious classical music awards, the Prix Caecilia, announced their choice top 10 recordings of the year including Leif Ove Andsnes' debut Beethoven recording. Reviewing the album at the time of release Belgium's Klara Radio commented "Here we have a modern reference for the Beethoven concertos. Leif Ove Andsnes brings joy, excitement, a driving force and beautiful flowing lines in the fast outer movements, and a moving profundity in the slow ones. His playful, free and imaginative dialogues with the accompanying alert Mahler Chamber Orchestra make the listening experience even greater."
