The New York Times has called him “a pianist of magisterial elegance, power, and insight.” With his commanding technique and searching interpretations, the celebrated Norwegian pianist has won acclaim worldwide; the Wall Street Journal has named him “one of the most gifted musicians of his generation.” He gives recitals and plays concertos in the world’s leading concert halls and with the foremost orchestras, besides being an active recording artist. An avid chamber musician, he served as co-artistic director of the Risør Festival of Chamber Music for nearly two decades, and was music director of California’s 2012 Ojai Music Festival.
