Majestic, striding, and tender, Beethoven’s Fifth Piano Concerto is not only a crowning achievement among Beethoven’s compositions, but among all the piano concertos written before or since.  Schumann’s Third Symphony “Rhenish” exudes beauty and grandeur: a true love letter to the Rhine River, where Schumann lived most of his life.
