After hearing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, Beethoven could well have muttered ‘I will never be able to write something like that’. Quite soon afterwards, he wrote his Third Piano Concerto, a C minor concerto to rival Mozart’s. Bruckner, in his turn, believed that he would always be in the shadow of Beethoven. His Ninth Symphony alone – whose Adagio affords us a glimpse of paradise – proves that he was mistaken.
