Schubert Rosamunde Overture
Beethoven Piano Concerto No.3
Dvořák Symphony No.8
Join the APO for a concert featuring some of the big names in classical music.
If a favourite is a piece that people never tire of, no matter how often it’s heard, then Schubert’s Rosamunde Overture is a prime candidate. As with so much of Schubert’s music, it can feel like we’ve known these spaciously unfolding melodies all our lives.
Beethoven’s turbulent Third Piano Concerto is by a composer flexing his muscles: it looks back to Mozart but its force is all Beethoven’s own.
Dvořák’s most bucolic symphony is likewise a favourite for good reason. Few pieces are so uncomplicatedly happy. It’s out-of-doors music by a humble man with simple tastes.
