  • He’s also tickled the ivories at the top of a mountain fjord (the piano was choppered in, I seem to remember).

  • Is it possible, Mr. Lebrecht, to post these photos so they are larger? For example, this photo of Andsnes has him as less than 1/2-inch tall on my desktop monitor. Nearly all of the photos on your website are very small and hard to see.


  • Mr. Andsnes’ latest Beethoven interpretations (“The Beethoven Voyage”, sic) are fine but his sensation-seeking happenings, like piano-playing in a fjord or when he destroyed a piano when playing in the middle of running water, are irritating and unserious.
