The pianist Alice Sara Ott plays the Piano Concerto No.3 composed by Ludwig van Beethoven, with the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Mikko Franck. Live recording on january 27th 2018 in the auditorium of Radio France (Paris).

Beethoven’s Piano Concerto no.3 was first performed in Vienna on 5 April 1803, the same day as the oratorio Christ on the Mount of Olives and the Symphony no.2. Composed in c minor, a key dear to the composer, the work is divided into three movements. The Allegro con brio begins with a long orchestral exposition of the two principal themes, in turn played by the soloist. During the development, a dialogue is established between the soloist and the orchestra. The movement closes with a piano cadenza, inspired by the initial theme.

At the heart of the Largo, the piano arpeggios accompany the serene melody performed by the flute and the bassoon together. Gérard Condé describes this as “a musical transposition of the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet”. Finally, in the Rondo, the orchestra and soloist dialogue with vigour.

“This is without a doubt Beethoven’s “great” concerto […], marking a subtle change in the balance between the soloist and the orchestra, finally considered as equal partners”, explains François-René Tranchefort.
