BEETHOVEN Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor

Facing a tight deadline?
Take heart—you’re in good company!

When the time finally came for Beethoven to conduct and perform his long-gestating Piano Concerto No. 3, he rushed to get parts ready for the orchestra and barely scratched out a vague solo part for himself. By all reports, his page-turner had a very rough night, but Beethoven sailed through beautifully. On-the-spot creativity paid off for Beethoven, just as it could for you!

Jeffrey Kahane conducts the Piano Concerto from the keyboard, emulating Beethoven at the premiere. The evening opens with delicate French Baroque works by Rameau. Paul Neubauer, the youngest-ever musician to be appointed to a principal chair of the New York Philharmonic, performs a concerto composed especially for him.

[Paul Neubauer] makes his instrument soar into the stratosphere.” (Oregon Music News)
