Beethoven: Piano Concertos 3 & 4
Featuring Diedre Irons with Christchurch Symphony Orchestra Marc Taddei

The complete cycle of Beethoven's piano concertos continues with this live recording of the third and fourth concertos. The third concerto is directly inspired by Mozart's own C minor concerto. However, the fatalism which pervades much of Mozart's work is transformed into the sternly heroic in Beethoven. Inspired more from his own music, it has been suggested that Beethoven's fourth concerto depicts Orpheus taming the Furies. The featured soloist in this series is celebrated Canadian-born pianist Diedre Irons.
