Featuring a dramatic opening movement, a lyrical second movement, and a dance-like final movement, the Piano Concerto No. 3 is considered one of Beethoven’s best. Then, the triumph and tragedy of Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5.

With Image Magnification (IMAG) on the big screen for a closer look at the guest artist, conductor and orchestra musicians!

Combining exceptional lyricism and insight with consummate technique, Alessio Bax is without a doubt "among the most remarkable young pianists now before the public" (Gramophone).
