|Beethoven||Piano Concerto No. 5 (Emperor)||40'|
The fearsome machines and indomitable spirit of the workers in Mosolov’s ballet score give a dramatic opening to a programme inspired by the 1917 Russian Revolution. Shostakovich’s symphony follows suit with an unusually patriotic depiction of Lenin’s life, commissioned by the Communist Party to honour the revolution. Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ concerto also continues the grand theme, with his noblest score since his ‘Eroica’.
Part of Russia 17.
