The opening movement of Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto is full of tension and drama, followed by a slow movement graced with eloquent dialogue between the piano and woodwind instruments. The vivacious finale is a rondo punctuated with quicksilver piano cadenzas, which switches to the major for a joyful conclusion.
The Eroica symphony expanded both symphonic form and musical language in one astounding blow. The emotional heart of the piece is the famous funeral march, and it ends with a set of variations on a simple tune that overflows with musical imagination.
