‘I am the new Bacchus, pressing out glorious wine for the human spirit’ proclaimed Beethoven – and although his Fourth Symphony might be his sunniest, there’s no mistaking the ambition, the fantasy and the sheer, untamed inspiration that pulses through every note. Not all revolutions are noisy, though. Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto begins with the piano all alone and playing softly – ideal for a pianist with the creative flair of Nicolas Namoradze. It’s all about personality: and with a star turn from soprano Sophie Bevan, plus a sparkling overture from the composer they called ’the Black Mozart‘, there’ll be no shortage of that.
