The No. 1 pianist of all time....
One of the advantages of living in Atlanta is that there are 57 colleges and universities in the area. Many provide concert/recital programs that provide an opportunity to enjoy famous musicians in sometimes intimate settings. Among the best is the concert series at Clayton State University in Morrow, Georgia. Not only does it host world-class musicians, but it has an acoustical gem as its home base, that is, the renowned Spivey Hall. Not only does the hall sound good, but it also looks good; it is decorated in a refined spare Italianate style.
On January 29, 2023, Spivey Hall was nearly filled with patrons eager to hear a solo piano performance by Norwegian-born Leif Ove Andsnes, who is a multi-Grammy award nominee, a Gramophone award winner, and recipient of honors from around the world. Maybe with a bit of hyperbole, he has been named “The No. 1 pianist of all time” by Classic.FM!
