About the event


Symphony No. 1 in C major, Op. 21

Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major, Op. 58

Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67

Marios Papadopoulos piano/conductor

Should there be any doubts as to why the world is celebrating Beethoven in 2020, this concert will dispel them. From the fearsome opening thunderclap of the fifth symphony, Beethoven developed a new kind of symphonic discourse through relentless focus on one musical motto invested with unstoppable momentum. After the bursting impulses of the first symphony and before the furies of the fifth, Marios Papadopoulos is both soloist and conductor for Beethoven’s most tender piano concerto – premiered at the same 1808 concert as the fifth symphony and yet a world away in its supple, soothing expression.
