Beethoven 250: Krystian Zimerman performs the complete Beethoven Piano Concertos

December 15th, 2020 in Piano Street Site News by | 1 comment

Renowned Polish pianist Krystian Zimerman joins forces with the London Symphony Orchestra and its Music Director Simon Rattle at LSO St Luke’s for a three-concert cycle of the five piano concertos. The stream will take place on DG Stage, a new video music service for classical concert streams from Deutsche Grammophon.

Streamed on the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, this opening concert begins with Concerto No.1, written after No.2 but published first. Brimming with bold melodic and harmonic writing, No.1 reveals the emergence of Beethoven’s own inimitable voice. Second on the programme is Concerto No.3, in the key of C minor, associated in Beethoven’s work with a sense of drama and foreboding.

  • Deutsche Grammophon says:

    They should make more livestreaming platforms for classical music. I’m assuming it hasn’t really taken off yet, since I haven’t really heard of it before? Good on Deutsche Grammophon for leading the charge, in that case. And thanks to Piano Street for informing. I wonder if more labels are going to follow soon?
