The symphony that changed everything and kick-started the Romantic period, Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’ Symphony is one of the most compelling and revolutionary masterpieces of the nineteenth century. Here it’s performed alongside the full-throttle drama of Tchaikovsky’s expressive first piano concerto. Opening the concert is the noble overture from Mozart’s opera, La Clemenza di Tito, written just a few months before his death in 1791, and based on the life of the great Roman Emperor Titus.
