Beethoven Piano Concerto Cycle

Between 1795 and 1809, Ludwig Van Beethoven wrote five piano concerti that have been equally loved by pianists and audiences alike for more than 220 years. During the 2017-2018 season, the Pittsburgh Symphony will perform all five concerti across the season, works that display Beethoven’s unbelievable musical intellect and reveal the emotional depth and power of his compositions — Piano Concerto No. 3 (February 23-25); Piano Concerto No. 2 (March 2 & 4); Piano Concerto No. 1 (April 6 & 8); Piano Concerto No. 4 (June 8 & 10); and Piano Concerto No. 5, “Emperor,” (June 15-17).
