New Beethoven Work Discovered!
Just when you thought it had all been found and played:
"The Adagio of a previously unknown piano concerto by Beethoven, discovered at the British Museum, will get its world premiere on February 1 in Rotterdam, one of the organisers of the concert said Thursday"
According to a report from Reuters: "This is the first time it will be played. It's got the same mood as the well-known third piano concerto," the orchestra's conductor Conrad van Alphen said on Friday. The 8-minute piece is based on incomplete piano music and notes on musical accompaniment written by the German composer the year the French Revolution broke out.
