Beethoven's Triple Concerto is a tour de force for the soloist, exploring motifs and contrasting moods, life three characters in a play. Repeated three times in the weeks following its premiere, "applause rose to the point of ecstasy" for Beethoven's 7th Symphony. Blazing, wild, breathless and utterly joyful, it continues to be a work of enduring artistic significance and popularity more than 200 years after its premiere.
