Live from the Queen Elizabeth Hall , London, pianist Robert Levin directs two of Beethoven's piano concertos from the keyboard. He plays an instrument built at the time when Beethoven was writing, early in the 19th century. Setting the concertos in their historic context is one of Haydn's most brilliant and eccentric symphonies and there is a curtain-raiser by Beethoven's Czech friend and contemporary, Antonin Reicha. Presented by John Shea.
