"Described by The New York Times as 'the most accomplished pianist of the new generation,' Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes has received four Gramophone Awards and seven Grammy nominations. He has recorded more than 30 discs spanning repertoire from Bach to the present day. His technique and interpretations have won him worldwide praise and a 2010-2011 artist-in-residence position with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. He returns to Memorial Hall following his 2009 performance of 'Pictures Reframed,' created in collaboration with South African artist Robin Rhode."
