Luca Montebugnoli: Eroica / Erard

October 1803: On hearing Beethoven play the “Eroica” Symphony on his new Erard Frères piano, a witness remarked, “Heaven and Earth must shake at its performance.” Inspired by this historical scene, Luca Montebugnoli has created a new arrangement of the symphony designed for and played on a unique replica of Beethoven’s Erard piano. By delivering a novel interpretation of an iconic work, Montebugnoli revives the neglected art of piano arrangement, while also exploring the full potential of what was in Beethoven’s life a revolutionary instrument.
