For several years Leif Ove Andsnes has been a permanent mentor in the Crescendo pro- gramme, in which selected young musicians work intensively with experienced artists. Mu- sicians of different generations appear on the stage on equal terms, and create scintillating and moving moments of pure musicality. The concert starts with Shostakovich's String Quartet no. 7 and Mozart's G minor Piano Quartet. 'The common feature of these works is their compactness, and they alternate between playfulness and intensity,' explains the pianist. He is looking forward to a new concert under the auspices of Crescendo, as he is to working with the young British violist Timothy Ridout and the acclaimed cellist Torleif Thedéen. The programme also includes works by com- posers less frequently heard in concert. 'Alexander Wustin is highly respected in Russia, but rarely performed outside his home country. 044 FOU N DAT I ON S Ernő Dohnányi's gorgeous Piano Quintet no. 2 is a piece I got to know a couple of years ago, and I have come to appreciate it greatly. It is beauti- fully theatrical, childlike, nostalgic and romantic music. The five instruments together create a wonderful sound,’ says Leif Ove Andsnes.
