Beethoven’s 7th Symphony is known particularly for its catchy rhythms. Back in its day, one critic said the last movement sounded as if Beethoven had lost his mind. In this “Apotheosis of the dance” the dance-like symphony is framed by impressive dance suites by Blacher and Raitio. The soloist in Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 is world-famous Alexander Melnikov.
