The name of this famous concerto refers not to Napoleon (Beethoven hated him) but was branded this way by English-speaking publishers to add a regal air to the music.
Of course, this master’s work needs no embellishment.
The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra performs the work at 8 p.m. Nov. 5 and 6 at Music Hall, 1241 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine. Tickets are $10-$95.
