SINFONIA EROICA | THE FIRST GREAT ROMANTIC SYMPHONY

Login for pricing

In 1805, the world of music was set on its ears by a new work from a German composer. Intellectually and emotionally, Beethoven’s Third Symphony, the ‘Eroica’, was revolutionary music. After those first two stunning chords, Western music was never the same again. And the whiff of actual political revolution was woven into the work, for it was originally dedicated to Napoleon Bonaparte, a dangerous hero for a composer dependent on conservative royal patronage.
