Head of Piano Joanna MacGregor CBE introduces a day celebrating Beethoven’s 250th anniversary. His vivacious chamber music sits alongside works by Prokofiev, Khachaturian, Ireland, Per Nørgård and Dobrinka Tabakova, and two pinnacles of solo virtuosity are also featured: the Diabelli Variations and Liszt’s arrangement of the ‘Eroica’ Symphony.
