This concert is part of Series 3
- This was the most important performance in Beethoven’s lifetime, the concert which featured the premieres of his Symphonies 5 and 6.
- Beethoven himself played the premieres of his Fourth Piano Concerto and Choral Fantasy. Nearly deaf at the time, the Akademie would be his last public performance as a concert pianist.
- Beethoven sought to prove himself as the greatest composer of symphonies, sacred and dramatic music and the greatest pianist in Europe.
- For this ultimate Beethoven experience, opt to join us for dinner in the Music Hall Ballroom, which will be transformed into a Viennese Biergarten.
