Leif Ove Andsnes and colleagues’ traversal of the complete Brahms piano quartets a year ago was a season highlight, making CCR’s Top Ten Performances of 2016.

The Norwegian pianist returns Sunday afternoon, this time teaming up with Marc-André Hamelin for an offbeat two-piano program. On tap are Mozart’s Larghetto and Allegro in E-flat, Stravinsky’s Concerto for Two Pianos, Debussy’s En blanc et noir and Stravinsky’s own rarely performed 176-key arrangement of The Rite of Spring.

Concert time is 3 p.m. Sunday at Symphony Center.; 312-294-3000.
