Program notes Jose Antonio Canton

The eloquent and significant title given to Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ Concerto by the pianist and composer Johann Baptist Cramer is due to its grandiosity. Written in 1809, the Concerto’s concept and proportions make it one of Beethoven’s most impressive works. Also called “symphony with piano”, it synthesizes the balance of the Third Concerto and the lyricism of the Fourth.
According to the musicologists A. Della Corte and G. Pannain in respect to Beethoven’s Pastoral: "It is difficult to find a composition in which, like in this symphony, the musical form embraces the reality of the exterior world without losing any of its substance. Beethoven’s concept of nature is summed up in his notes, essentially adapting to Kant’s formulation in which the natural world is a clearly distinct reality subordinated to the rationality of the thinking me, or even opposed because of what is unknown, undetermined in nature; and of the dark forces of chance and the unconscious.
