The programme order is:

  • HAYDN Sonata in C Minor, Hob. XVI:20
  • BARTÓK Suite, Op. 14
  • DEBUSSY Images, Book I
  • CHOPIN Waltz in F Minor, Op. 70, No. 2
  • CHOPIN Waltz in G-flat Major, Op. 70, No. 1
  • CHOPIN Waltz in D-flat Major, Op. 70, No. 3
  • CHOPIN Waltz in A-flat Major, Op. 42
  • CHOPIN Ballade in A-flat Major, Op. 47
  • CHOPIN Nocturne in B Major, Op. 62, No. 1
  • CHOPIN Ballade in G Minor, Op. 23

There is an insightful pre-show segment on Andsnes choosing the right piano, lots of intermission chatter, and, best of all, wonderful, clear-headed piano performances from Andsnes. (The format makes it easy to replay or skip over material.)
