“It has come to our attention that there is a mistake in the printed booklet that accompanies the new release from Leif Ove Andsnes: Mozart Piano Concertos Nos. 17 & 20 with the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra. The booklet mentions that the cadenza for the last movement of Piano Concerto No. 20 is written by Leif Ove himself. This is incorrect; it is in fact written by Johann Nepomuk Hummel, Mozart's pupil. For the first movement of the same concerto, it says that the cadenza was written by Beethoven and arranged by Edwin Fischer; this is also incorrect: it is Beethoven's own cadenza that Leif Ove performs. EMI Classics will make sure that this information is corrected in any further booklet reprints, and kindly asks that reviewers of the album make note of this correction.”
