Beethoven’s power to inspire composers and performers never dims. When the 16 year-old Veronika Eberle played his serene Violin Concerto with Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic at the 2006 Salzburg Festival, the musical world sat up and took notice. Here she returns to her musical calling-card under the baton of David Afkham.

Unsuk Chin has also fallen under Beethoven’s spell: he’s the inspiration for her freshly-minted Subito con forza, which receives its UK Premiere at this summer’s BBC Proms. There’s no denying that Robert Schumann’s Third Symphony bears the stamp of Ludwig’s innovations too - but it has a sweep and panache all of its own, as it conjures vistas of Cologne Cathedral and the Rhineland.
