Piano Concerto No. 1 in C major, Op. 15
Symphony No. 3 in E flat major, Op. 55, ‘Eroica’
Marios Papadopoulos piano/conductor
Concert introduced by John Suchet
250 years on from the birth of the man who changed the course of music forever, Marios Papadopoulos salutes Ludwig van Beethoven in the most absorbing and comprehensive way: presenting a complete cycle of the composer’s symphonies and piano concertos as both conductor and soloist throughout 2020. The Oxford Beethoven Festival launches at the Sheldonian Theatre with the composer’s clipped and courteous Piano Concerto No. 1 and his revolutionary heroic symphony that is anything but, the ‘Eroica’. Beethoven aficionado and devotee John Suchet introduces the concert.
