Beethoven's Eroica Symphony changed the face of music. Its elemental power and heroic grandeur took early audiences by storm, and continues to do so to this day. Australian composer Carl Vine's Pipe Dreams , played by Welsh-born Emily Beynon, evokes a meditative, wistful world of gentle contemplation, whilst Stravinsky's Concerto is full of light and grace.
