The recital by Lise Davidsen and Leif Ove Andsnes has been postponed by one day, being now scheduled for 18 August 2021 (previously 17 August). Lise Davidsen will be performing at the Bayreuth Opera Festival before coming to Turku, and the timetable there has changed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Lise Davidsen definitely wants to give the recital in Turku, so we decided to reschedule it and hope that this will not unduly inconvenience those who have already bought tickets. The recital will form a wonderful conclusion to next summer’s Festival,” says Liisa Ketomäki.

Lise Davidsen, soprano
Leif Ove Andsnes, piano
Currently the most acclaimed and sought-after Wagner soprano in the world, Lise Davidsen, will appear with pianist Leif Ove Andsnes at Turku Concert Hall. The two prominent Norwegian performing artists will be performing a programme built around Edvard Grieg’s song cycle Haugtussa.
The New York Times has described Lise Davidsen as “one voice in a million”, and Opera Now magazine has declared that Wagner singers like her only come along once in a generation. Leif Ove Andsnes is one of Norway’s internationally most celebrated pianists and described by the Wall Street Journal as one of the most gifted musicians of his generation. Their joint recital is bound to be one of the highlights in Finland’s musical calendar in 2021.
