Programme Note

In his Third Piano Concerto Beethoven opened up a new dramatic and physical scope, pushing the instrument to new expressive lengths. The same maverick energy pulses through the ‘Choral Fantasy’, anticipating the Ninth Symphony in its unexpected resort to words in its finale. In Schoenberg’s tour de force Friede auf Erden (‘Peace on Earth’) the composer takes tonality to its limits. Stravinsky’s ‘Dumbarton Oaks’ Concerto is a delightful neo-Classical romp, an elegant homage to the 18th century.
