Ludwig van Beethoven realized he was losing his hearing when he entered one of the most prolific and creative periods of his professional life. It was during this period — named the middle period — that he composed the Third Piano Concerto. The Evanston Symphony Orchestra will perform this major work with pianist Inna Faliks at its concert on Sunday, April 10, at 2:30 p.m. at Pick-Staiger.
