So...I was at a concert today.

One of my friends e-mailed me about a concert today, and I was all for going, I was so excited. It was a piano concerto by a famous Norwegian pianist named Leif Ove Andsnes. He collaborated with the Boston and London Philharmonics, played in all sorts of cities around the world...etc. It was an AMAZING event.

In the first half of the concert, he started with a RIVETING "Toccata in E minor" by Bach, then straight into a Sonata in 4 movements, a Beethoven piece. He then concluded with a Sibelius piece (Lyrics and something), followed by a 20 minute dark balled by Greisg (or something like that, not getting the program out of my car, so feel free to correct me smile.gif).

After the intermission, he perfected excerpts from Debussy's Books 1 and 2, and for the encore ended with a Schubert cover. It was BRILLIANT, and so amazing. I was VERY VERY impressed.

I just wanted to see how many other musicians, especially Norwegian, have heard of this musician and his antics. Because I've had the pleasure of seeing him live, and everyone should get the same chance! biggrin.gif

I know who he is, and he's amazing!!!
He's more known in the rest of the world than he is in Norway I believe..
And he's won his fair share of awards as well, he is really really good smile.gif

It sounded like an awesome concert, thanks for sharing smile.gif

Your welcome. He was in Birmingham, AL, at my college campus, so me and a couple friends went to hear him play. His focus and emotion while playing is astounding. biggrin.gif
