Leif Ove Andsnes on the edge

Posted at 9:41 AM on September 26, 2012 by Alison Young

Love this photo of Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes. It catches him relaxed, focused, with music on his mind and a job to do as his piano perches thousands of feet in the air atop a mountain.

Leif climbs many mountain passes in tonight's Carnegie Hall Live concert - a reprise of selections from his solo recital (and a couple of other hot ticket names) that we broadcast live here on Classical-MPR.

And what a concert! Haydn, Bartok, Debussy, Chopin - a whirlwind. Don't miss it tonight at 8:00.
