Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto & Bruckner’s Fourth

Stephen Hough, whom The Guardian calls “a whole orchestra in himself,” performs Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto. It is a piece full of stunning moments, such as the first movement’s tempestuous chords giving way to ethereal trills in the piano’s high register. Markus Stenz leads the orchestra in Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony, almost overwhelming in its grandeur, with majestic horn calls and mesmerizing themes.
