It was Jonathan Biss himself who commissioned Sally Beamish to write ‘City Stanzas’, in which she extracts stanzas from Beethoven?s third piano concerto and places them in a new context: the chaotic and transient urban environment. Beethoven?s Piano Concerto No. 1 in C Major resides in the borderland between classicist and romantic genius; there are strains of Haydn as well as of Eroica. That Richard Strauss saw himself as a genius, or at least a hero, is evident from his majestic ‘Ein Heldenleben’.

Programme:

Beamish: Piano Concerto no. 3 ‘City Stanza’
Beethoven: Piano Concerto no. 1
Strauss: Ein Heldenleben
