Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 3
Beethoven’s sublime Third Piano Concerto is a masterpiece embodying a profound journey from stormy drama to tranquil resolution. This will be followed by the gentle charm of Sibelius’s music, which will transport you to Nordic landscapes painted with lush, musical brush strokes.
