Over the next four seasons, the celebrated Norwegian pianist and new exclusive Sony Classical artist Leif Ove Andsnes will devote the majority of his performing and recording activities to the music of Ludwig van Beethoven. At the heart of The Beethoven Journey is the pianist's commitment to perform and record Beethoven's five piano concertos with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra (MCO). The Beethoven Journey began this year with a concert series at the Prague Spring Festival, with Andsnes performing and directing the orchestra from the keyboard. Now, Andsnes releases his first Beethoven recording ever.  Available on Tuesday, September 11, 2012, Piano Concertos No. 1 & 3 is the first recording in his Beethoven Journey series.
