What’s interesting about this concert:

• This was the most important performance in Beethoven’s lifetime, the concert which featured the premieres of his Symphonies 5 and 6.
• Beethoven himself played the premieres of his Fourth Piano Concerto and Choral Fantasy. Nearly deaf at the time, the Akademie would be his last public performance as a concert pianist.
• Beethoven sought to prove himself as the greatest composer of symphonies, sacred and dramatic music and the greatest pianist in Europe.

This concert is part of Series 3.
