Marios Papadopoulos directs Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 from the keyboard, before the Oxford Philharmonic perform the composer’s Symphony No. 7.
The seventh is Beethoven’s most fascinating symphony – a work whose new vision of rhythm’s relationship with harmony produced the most physical, compelling music that had ever been created. Beethoven wasn’t just exploring new techniques, he was giving voice to a wave of joy that had swept into his life and filled him with determination and optimism.
Before it, Marios Papadopoulos directs Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 from the keyboard, in which dark drama and brute force give way to the sort of lyricism only this composer could produce.
Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor, Op. 37
