The World's Greatest Music
One of today's greatest pianists, Norwegian Leif Ove Andsnes has won worldwide acclaim, particularly for his performances of the music of Grieg and Beethoven. He gives recitals and concerts in the world’s leading venues and with its foremost orchestras, as well as recording award-winning albums.
Leif Ove Andsnes was born on 7 April 1970 in Karmoy - an island community off the west coast of Norway where both his parents were music teachers. He started playing piano when he was five and by the age of nine he was winning prizes in every youth competition he entered. At 16, he was accepted into the Bergen Music Conservatory.
