Hailed by critics on four continents, pianist Orli Shaham kicks off the National Philharmonic’s 2012-2013 season with Beethoven’s sublime Piano Concerto No. 3. The heroic Symphony No. 3 (“Eroica”)—originally dedicated to Napoleon—marked the arrival of Beethoven’s middle period, featuring powerful large-scale works.
