ABOUT

The Piano Concerto No. 3 has been described as a turning point in Beethoven’s development as a composer, “where he leaves Mozart behind and becomes Beethoven,” as one observer put it. Romantic, imposing and virtuosic: the voice of a composer becoming his true self. The sonorous and lyrical pianist Benjamin Grosvenor performs the concerto, with Case Scaglione leading the Orchestra. The second half features Beethoven’s powerful Symphony No. 4.
