This season’s annual weekend of all-Beethoven programs highlights works of the world’s most revered and recognized composer: Ludwig van Beethoven. For the 2016 installment, it’s the Coriolan Overture followed by Piano Concerto No. 3 and Symphony No. 7. The opener tackles the 1807 composition that opened Heinrich Joseph von Collin’s tragedy Coriolan. Shakespeare also mined this fertile story of a Roman rebel. Piano Concerto No. 3 showcases soloist Stephen Hough, the world-renowned British pianist, conducted by David Danzmayr. Symphony No. 7 is a fitting finale for the evening.
