Head of Piano, Professor Joanna MacGregor CBE, introduces a day celebrating Beethoven’s 250th anniversary. His vivacious chamber music sits alongside works by Prokofiev, Khachaturian, Ireland and Dobrinka Tabakova, and two pinnacles of solo virtuosity are also featured: the Diabelli Variations and Liszt’s transcription of the ‘Eroica’ Symphony.
