Lise Davidsen, Leif Ove Andsnes, Barbican review - perfect Grieg, impressive Strauss and Wagner

Leif Ove Andsnes and Lise Davidsen salute each other's artistry at the end of a generous recitalBoth images Mark Allan/Barbican. The visuals last night, in the first concert of a Barbican mini-residency, made the Grieg first half better still: Davidsen lives each world, communicates so well with her audience – as she moves so beautifully on and off stage, too, she looks around as if to engage – and has the benefit of a well-lit stage, the auditorium duly darkened, with translations projected on a screen above (why doesn’t the Wigmore do that?) Andsnes’ perfect placing of every final chord or phrase registered in a silence that was alive with intensity.

Review: At the Pittsburgh Symphony, a formidable pianist surprises with a severe Grieg concerto

Blessed be the pianist that still finds a way to startle and delight even with a staple of the pianistic repertoire. At Friday's Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra concert, Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki delivered a formidable, inventive performance of Grieg's Concerto in A minor for Piano and Orchestra alongside guest conductor Pablo Heras-Casado. Lisiecki's ear for melodic contour is exceptional. From the first explosive chord, he was collected and controlled, leading the ear toward harmonic conclusions with simple, elegant phrases and masterful lyricality, startling on occasion with a well-timed acceleration or elasticity in his timing.

Best music for spring – Grieg, Glazunov, Debussy, Schumann, Strauss

The last few days of unabated San Diego sunshine have me feeling particularly spring-ish even though we are technically in the dead of winter with spring still a month or so away. However, it did get me thinking. I don’t believe we’ve ever looked at spring-based music here in the column.
