Great Composers

Concerto: A Beethoven Journey 12A

Wed 16 Dec, 6.30pm

Filmed over the course of four years, award-winning director Phil Grabsky follows leading concert pianist Leif Ove Andsnes’ attempt to understand and interpret one of the greatest sets of works for piano ever written: Beethoven’s five piano concertos.

Considered one of the top pianists of the age, Leif Ove Andsnes offers rare insights into the mind of a world-class pianist and access to his personal and professional life.

Against the wonderful background of Leif Ove playing these five pieces, we also show how these works offer a new and fresh way of examining Beethoven’s life and work.

Leif Ove Andsnes’s own life as a pianist is also revealed, and despite knowing and performing all the great composers, he concludes after this major project with Beethoven’s piano concerti – and a world-wide

sell-out tour – that the greatest composer in history is indeed Ludwig van Beethoven.
