Enjoy the rarely-played but fantastic Beethoven Triple Concerto and two other great works
This is the third year that we have tried to bring the fantastic Beethoven Triple Concerto to you. We hope it's third time lucky! It has been claimed that Beethoven wrote this now very well-known, brilliant Triple Concerto for Archduke Rudolf of Austria who was taking piano lessons from him. That may be why the piano part is thought to be perhaps slightly less demanding than the other two parts which were to be played by professional musicians. Here we present the internationally renowned Trio Anima Mundi - Kenji Fujimura (piano), Rochelle Ughetti (violin), and Miranda Brockman (guest cello).
Mozart’s Magic Flute Overture needs absolutely no introduction! Die Zauberflöte has been described as having “… the greatest variety of orchestral colour that the eighteenth century was to know.”
Tchaikovsky’s 6th symphony, the Pathétique, is his last completed symphony. He called it "The Passionate Symphony", but the name Pathétique was given to it by his brother, Modest Ilyich, after the composer's most untimely death.
