The music of friends: for pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, performing with the musicians of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra is first and foremost about “partnership, a companionship”. Together, they’ve explored the music of Beethoven; now they turn to Mozart and in this lunchtime recital at Battersea Arts Centre they pare it down to basics – Andsnes, three MCO players and some of the loveliest chamber music ever created: the Piano Trio KV 502 and the warm-hearted Piano Quartet KV 493.

This is music that Mozart conceived to be played at home, intimate without being inhibited, and playful without ever being flashy. Just inspiration, wit and melodies that speak straight to the heart.
