导赏  史蒂芬·贺夫的这场音乐会迟到了整整两年。贝多芬的第三钢琴协奏曲与第五钢琴协奏曲“皇帝”,原本是他计划在中国爱乐乐团2019-2020音乐季的闭幕音乐会上演奏的,献给贝多芬诞辰250周年。由于众所周知的原因,中国爱乐乐团在2020年上半年安排的音乐季演出都因故取消。两年之后,就像是一份迟到了两年终于兑现的约定,这位享誉世界的英国钢琴家终于要把这两首协奏曲献给北京的听众,同时也算是向贝多芬送上迟来的生日祝福。担任这场音乐会指挥的是新锐指挥家张橹,本场音乐会是两位音乐家第一次与中国爱乐乐团合作。

在贝多芬的五部钢琴协奏曲里,前两部相对早期的作品还并不能代表最纯正的贝多芬风格,与其他古典主义作曲家的相似之处多过了个性的部分。贝多芬在第三钢琴协奏曲里真正展现出了自己的风格,而8年后的第五钢琴协奏曲“皇帝”则堪称贝多芬所有音乐体裁里最杰出的作品之一。在1825年,一位音乐评论家曾抱怨,为什么那么多歌剧可以每年上演几十次、上百次,而贝多芬的钢琴协奏曲就不能多上演几次呢?幸好,绝大多数那个年代粗制滥造的歌剧早已得不到演出的机会,而贝多芬的钢琴协奏曲则常演不衰。

听众还将在音乐会上欣赏到《莱奥诺拉》第三序曲,这是贝多芬为其一生中唯一的一部歌剧作品所写下的第三首序曲,贝多芬一共为这部歌剧(原名《莱奥诺拉》,后改名为《费德里奥》)写过四首序曲,足见作曲家对作品的精雕细琢严苛到了何等程度。《莱奥诺拉》第三序曲是这四首序曲中篇幅最长的,同时也是艺术价值最高的,是一首值得音乐爱好者反复聆听的佳作。
