Schumann: Manfred Overture
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor
Schumann: Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major (Rhenish) 

Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3 introduced a more personal style as the composer started to push the piano to its expressive limits. He didn't bother completing the piano part for the premiere, simply playing the work from memory. 

As the new conductor of the Düsseldorf orchestra, Schumann wanted to impress the proud Rhineland folk. His lovely Rhenish symphony was the result: a journey from imposing brass to bucolic waltzes to magnificent cathedral impressions.The concert opens with Schumann's take on Manfred, the original Byronic hero.
