Beethoven: Symphony No. 3 (Eroica)
Silvan Negrutiu’s performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.3 is contrasted by Rautavaara’s ethereal Cantus arcticus, a piece that incorporates tape recordings of bird songs recorded near the Arctic Circle and on the bogs of Liminka in northern Finland. You won’t want to miss Beethoven’s confrontational Symphony No. 3, a piece that caused a sensation and changed the idea of what a symphony could be.
