The pianist Leif Ove Andsnes is by far the most prominent classical musician in Norway. He has been at the heart of building the festival’s reputation for the first few years by regularly visiting us. He still do that, and we are proud to have hijacked one of only four solo concerts in Norway in 2020.
As Leif Ove was central to the acquisition of the new grand piano in Buksnes Church, it was his own wish to place the concert here.
He plays music by Dvorak, Bartok and Schumann, and has promised to be generous with the extras.
