Piano Concerto no. 2

Symphony no. 1


Launching this special Beethoven year – marking the 250
th anniversary of the composer’s birth – we welcome superstar pianist Lang Lang in a programme featuring music with which Beethoven launched his career in Vienna.  The Egmont Overture was Beethoven’s introduction to musical theatre, the First Symphony showed his indebtedness to his teacher Haydn, while the Piano Concerto, despite its number, was actually the first one he composed and performed for the Viennese audience.
