By the age of 30, deafness was already encroaching on Beethoven’s world.

Thanks to a letter he wrote in 1802 (which was discovered 25 years later), we have some insight into the dark emotional state he found himself – something masterfully captured by Brett Dean’s Testament, and further proof of what the extraordinary Beethoven was able to achieve, personally and artistically, with his later work.

With his Third Piano Concerto, we launch into a multi-year project presenting all of Beethoven’s piano concertos with Javier Perianes, a musician renowned for his supreme grasp of Beethoven’s rich musical architecture. Cut from the same cloth of genius as his fifth and ninth symphonies, Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony is a blazing, heroic work that’s a triumph of spirit and art. It’s an appropriate finale to this first chapter of our Beethoven project.
