Beethoven Piano Concertos 1 and 4 - Part 2

Episode 2 of 2

Paul Lewis launches his complete cycle of Beethoven Piano Concertos and Jiri Belohlavek conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in an all-Beethoven programme.


Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Katie Derham

A Beethoven Night at the Proms. Distinguished pianist, Paul Lewis, launches his complete cycle of piano concertos with the exuberant First and the more introspective but still tensely dramatic Fourth. He is partnered by Jiri Belohlavek and the BBC Symphony Orchestra with whom he recently recorded all five concertos. And there is more characteristic Beethovenian drama with two heroic overtures: one battling against oppression and the other recounting the legend of the Creatures of Prometheus who were created with fire from the gods

Beethoven: The Creatures of Prometheus - overture
