Zimerman, Rattle and Beethoven: three great names, and five superb piano concertos, in one remarkable concert. The unquestioned highlight of this year of Beethoven celebrations.
Over three concerts, Sir Simon Rattle and the revered Polish pianist Krystian Zimerman have played all five of Beethoven’s piano concertos. Now they perform them all in one marathon concert. From the youthful first to the mighty ‘Emperor’, this is a real one-off: an unprecedented meeting of great musical minds.
That’s no exaggeration: the unique rapport between Zimerman and Sir Simon is based upon years of shared ideals and mutual respect. Gramophone described their partnership as ‘a thing of wonder’, praising their ‘thrilling sense of purpose’. Crucially, neither of them ever forgets that Beethoven is bigger than both of them, making this unprecedented, unrepeatable concert a worthy tribute to Beethoven at the end of this, his 250th anniversary year.
