Mozart's Attic - Thursday, Mar 7th 10:00 pm
By 1811, Beethoven's hearing had deteriorated to the point that he could no longer play with an ensemble.
He was an angry man, and who can blame him?
Even though he knew he would never perform his Piano Concerto No. 5, he wrote it as if for himself, channelling his rage into a withering piano part in this, his final piece in that form.
