Powerful musical forces are drawn together in this concert, with Beethoven at the centre. Having mastered the formal language of musical classicism, Beethoven in his Eroica Symphony unleashed the force of revolutionary emotion to create the first great statement of the Romantic spirit. Brett Dean leads this performance from the head of the viola section, placing himself at the orchestra’s heart to generate maximum emotional impact.
Dean leads this concert in more ways than one. His complete musicianship is expressed as conductor, performer and composer, including his own musical tribute to Beethoven’s powerful Heiligenstadt Testament.
Benjamin Grosvenor, the new sensation among British pianists, joins in to perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 20, which Beethoven declared his favourite for its combination of tender expression and dark harmonic shades.
