Boundless joy of playing by the masters of Viennese classical music and the most important talents of the Austrian music scene: these are the ingredients for a concert in a class of its own, to which the country's two largest music universities invite you. MUK and mdw will come together for the first time in 2022 to bring all five of Ludwig van Beethoven's legendary piano concertos to the stage and thus write a new chapter in Austrian music history.

The concert evening at the ORF RadioKulturhaus, accompanied by the Webern Chamber Philharmonic, will be heralded by the Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 2 in B-flat major, op. 19, which still draws on the early models of Viennese classical music. The Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 3 in C minor, op. 37, on the other hand, is considered Beethoven's first piano concerto with symphonic characteristics and, what's more, is the only one in a minor key. The concluding Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 5 in E-flat major, op. 73, also known as the "Emperor Concerto," is Beethoven's last completed piano concerto and is also one of the most frequently performed piano concertos in the world.
