Some refer to it as Beethoven's never-composed Cello Concerto: the Triple Concerto for Piano, Violin, Cello and Orchestra in C Major. The slow movement is basically a single aria for the instrument. The instrumentation, a solo trio with orchestra, long remained unique in concert literature. The Vienna Symphony Orchestra precedes it with, among other things, excerpts from Shostakovich's Suite for Variety Orchestra, a composition that may surprise some. Not a long serious symphony, not a demanding string quartet, but a thoroughly entertaining and parodic music.
