In the finale of Pinchas Zukerman’s celebration of Beethoven’s legacy, the Zukerman Trio and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra perform a programme of spectacular symphonic power. In the first half is Beethoven’s Triple Concerto, a truly unique adaptation of the genre. The first composer to complete such a concerto for violin, piano and cello, Beethoven sets the stage to allow the soloists to converse in dramatic, animated passages that are embellished by a powerful symphonic accompaniment from the orchestra.
It’s hard to overstate the impact that Beethoven’s Symphony No.7 has had on the composer’s legacy; the immense energy the Symphony carries something truly memorable. Wagner’s description of the irresistible rhythms in the Vivace and Presto sections as the ‘apotheosis of the dance’ seem to be no exaggeration when the orchestra launches into a breath-taking pace. The second movement, Allegretto, remains one of the most famous movements of any of Beethoven’s symphonies; opening with a dotted rhythm in the strings that unfolds into a crescendo of immense power as the movement progresses to its awe-inspiring climax.
