Beethoven had a transformative effect on both the symphony and the piano concerto, expanding the expressive range and physical dimensions of both. Few works demonstrate that better than the composer’s pivotal Piano Concerto No 3 – in which the composer brings new drama and tension to the form – and the symphony with the most famous opening gambit in history. Beethoven’s Fifth is both a defiantly optimistic symphony and a manifesto for a new form of musical design that couldn’t help but influence future generations, not least the equally headstrong Louise Farrenc, whose music opens this concert. Javier Perianes joins Marios Papadopoulos and the Orchestra for some of the most striking orchestral works of the 19th century.
