BEETHOVEN Piano Concerto No 3
BRUCKNER Symphony No 9 (1894 Ed Nowak 1951 + Finale (unfinished). Performing Version by Samale-Phillips-Cohrs-Mazzuca (1983–2012))

Daniel Harding conductor
Maria João Pires piano
London Symphony Orchestra

For their second concert together, Daniel Harding and Maria João Pires turn to the middle of Beethoven’s five piano concertos and the last of Bruckner’s nine symphonies.

Written during a busy period, Beethoven did not have time to finish writing out his Third Concerto, instead performing the premiere largely from memory. The result was a surprising and imaginative work that pushed forward the way in which composers wrote for piano.
