    For the second of this three-program series presenting Beethoven's piano concertos, Yefim Bronfman, Christoph von Dohnányi, and the BSO join forces for the composer's Third and Fourth concertos. With the stormy, C minor Third (1801), Beethoven acknowledges a direct debt to Mozart's C minor concerto (No. 24) while asserting his own musical personality.

    For the second of this three-program series presenting Beethoven's piano concertos, Yefim Bronfman, Christoph von Dohnányi, and the BSO join forces for the composer's Third and Fourth concertos. With the stormy, C minor Third (1801), Beethoven acknowledges a direct debt to Mozart's C minor concerto (No. 24) while asserting his own musical personality. The Fourth Concerto, completed in 1806, and mostly in Beethoven's warm, relaxed mode, begins surprisingly with unaccompanied piano. Opening the concert is Beethoven's dramatic Leonore Overture No. 2- actually the first of the Leonore overtures to be composed, for the original 1805 version of the opera that ultimately became Fidelio.
