Beethoven’s imagination was on fire when he wrote the Fourth Piano Concerto and Fourth Symphony. Stepping back from the abyss – he was plunged into despair upon realising the inescapable fact of his encroaching deafness – he resolved to fulfil his destiny as a creative being, composing with new-found zeal and dynamism.


That dynamism is palpable in both of these works. The Symphony No 4 teems with original ideas while the Piano Concerto No 4 is by far the most experimental of all of Beethoven’s piano concertos. Embracing the poetic, introspective and heroic, the Fourth Concerto has long been prized by audiences and soloists. Making a welcome return to the TSO is brilliant Spanish pianist Javier Perianes.
