Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ piano concerto has been thrilling concert-goers for well over two centuries.

 Perhaps its appeal lies in the attention-grabbing flourishes that surge up the keyboard at the start, or the tender beauty of the slow movement or the irresistible swagger of the finale. Whatever the reason, the ‘Emperor’ is a perennial favourite. Hear it in all its dazzling glory with pianist Javier Perianes.

Another all-time favourite is Dvořák’s New World Symphony, which was voted the nation’s No 1 Symphony in the ABC Classic Top 100 Symphony poll. Composed in New York and inspired in part by music Dvořák heard in America, the New World Symphony is everything one expects from a symphony: it’s all-encompassing, captivating and emotionally uplifting.
