Hear the glorious, soaring phrases of Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 2 and then experience Beethoven's Symphony No. 3, initially inspired by his admiration for Napoleon Bonaparte. Later, he became disillusioned by Napoleon's ascent to power and literally tore through the dedication, writing instead, "Heroic Symphony composed to celebrate the memory of a great man."
Also on the program Weber's Overture to Euryanthe.
