In this year celebrating the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth, the concert will feature the composer's Triple Concerto in C major alongside his Symphony No. 9. Written for violin, cello and piano, the triple concerto is a late example of - and Beethoven's sole contribution to - the sinfonia concertante genre.
What makes the work interesting is the fact that Beethoven, in uncharacteristic fashion, actually took the abilities of the soloists into account when writing it: the relatively easy piano part was created specifically for his student Archduke Rudolf, while the string parts - composed for professional musicians from the archduke's court - were considerably more demanding.
Beethoven's output includes more than one opus magnum, with Fidelio, the Missa Solemnis, the Grand Fugue and the Hammer...klavier Sonata all clearly falling under this category. However, if one were to name a single work that is capable of addressing the widest possible audience imaginable, then that work would indisputably be the Ninth Symphony. This piece plays a key role in Beethoven's oeuvre as the climax of the thrilling development process of his late style. It is also both a revolutionary renewal of the symphonic genre showing the way to Mahler and the clearest and most palpable expression of Beethoven's humanist message.
