Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 3

The concert will conclude at approximately 9.15 PM.

The second night of Auckland’s Immerse 2022 presents Concerti No.2 and 3 of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto Cycle.

Beethoven’s Second Concerto, with its infectious rondo and exhilarating cadenza (the ink barely dry by the time Beethoven first performed the Concerto, having only written the cadenza days before the premiere) is an excellent example of Beethoven’s growing talent as a composer.

While the Second Piano Concerto is an example of a composer following tradition, his Third showed both a reverence to the great composers who preceded him, and his own flourishing sound.

English pianist Paul Lewis continues his tour de force of the full Beethoven Piano cycle with his performance of these two great works.
