Synopsis

As hosted by Norwegian concert pianist Andsnes, the compilation film Leif Ove Andsnes: Ballad for Edvard Grieg commences with a documentary on composer Grieg's Ballade in G Minor that carries the audience on a voyage across Europe; the film then interpolates a sequence of straightforward Grieg interpretations by Andsnes including one of Ballade in G Minor performed and shot at Bergen's Grieg Hall in 2007; another of the Piano Concerto in A Minor performed and shot at Bergen's Grieg Hall with the musical accompaniment of The Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Ole Kristian Ruud; and a series of Grieg pieces performed by Andsnes in the composer's original living room at Troldhaugen and on his original Steinway. The selections in this final segment include Norwegian Melody Op. 12 No. 6, Homesickness Op. 57 No. 6, At Your Feet Op. 68 No. 3 and several others. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
