Over four intense years, the Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes immersed himself in the work of Beethoven to the point where he fully identified with the German composer: “That’s part of the excitement – becoming the composer,” he said in an interview. “It’s a real privilege to dedicate yourself to a composer and to try and understand what the master was creating.” Andsnes later focused on other great composers, but he continued to carry all the knowledge and synchrony of his relationship with Beethoven but in dialogue with figures like Janáček, Vustin and Dvořák.
