March 11th brings the release of The Beethoven Journey: Piano Concertos Nos. 2 & 4, the second recording from 2013 Gramophone Hall of Fame inductee Leif Ove Andsnes in his long-term focus on the master composer's five piano concertos. Like the first title in the series, which won bothiTunes' Best Instrumental Album of 2012 and Belgium's Prix Caecilia, the new album was recorded for Sony Classical with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra (MCO) and directed from the keyboard by the Norwegian pianist himself.The new release heralds Andsnes's return to the States this March, with an all-Beethoven solo recital program that takes him to the main stages of four of the nation's leading venues – New York's Carnegie Hall (March 19), Chicago's Symphony Center (March 16), Atlanta's Spivey Hall (March 14), and Princeton's McCarter Theater (March 17) – crowning his epic 19-city, eleven-country tour across America, Europe, and Japan.
