Classic Arts News   Leif Ove Andsnes Gives Free Performance Tonight at Time-Warner Center
 
The celebrated Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes will be appearing at a free performance and reception this evening to celebrate the release of his new EMI Classics CD, Horizons.

The event begins at 6:30 pm at The Samsung Experience on the third floor of the Time-Warner Center at Columbus Circle in New York City. Andsnes will perform selections from Horizons and then sign copies of the new disc.

Horizons, which EMI is promoting as the pianist's "most revealing album to date," is a collection of 22 short pieces which are personally important to Andsnes and which he often uses as encores at his recitals.

Samsung, which is co-presenting the event with EMI Classics and the New York-based chamber orchestra Sejong, will hold a drawing to give away one neXus (a playback device for XM Satellite Radio content) and one Helix (a combination MP3 player and portable XM Satellite Radio receiver).
