    All-Beethoven Program

    Presented by at Symphony Hall

    March 13 - March 14, 2014


    All-Beethoven Program

    German conductor Christoph von Dohnányi and the Soviet-born, Israeli-American pianist Yefim Bronfman collaborate with the BSO in a series of three all-Beethoven programs featuring all five of the composer's piano concertos, plus the Triple Concerto for piano, violin, and cello, and his three Leonore overtures. This first program features the first two piano concertos-No. 2, written first, and No. 1, a more mature work showing Beethoven's independence of style within the language of Mozart and Haydn. The Leonore Overture No. 1 was actually the third overture written by Beethoven for his opera Leonore (eventually revised as Fidelio), for a projected 1807 Prague performance of the opera that never took place. As a result, the overture was not heard until nearly a year after Beethoven's death, and today remains a rarity even in the concert hall.
