Performance Details

Symphony No 1 (26’)
Symphony No 3 ‘Eroica’ (47’)


Please note that EMMANUEL KRIVINE is indisposed and we are very grateful to KEVIN JOHN EDUSEI for stepping in at short notice.

In 1805, Beethoven broke the mould of the Classical symphony, unleashing a symphonic energy regarded as a turning point in musical history. Welcome to Symphony No 3 ‘Eroica’. It was twice as long as anything that had come before it, and remains a timeless favourite for its emphatic expression of triumph.
