Performance Details


Beethoven Symphony No. 2
Beethoven Symphony No. 3 ("Eroica")

Hear the fascinating ways Beethoven inherited the symphony of his predecessors and transformed it for all time. His Symphony No. 2 looks back to Haydn and Mozart, but Beethoven infused it with dashes of rowdy humor and a Romantic sensibility—particularly the poetic slow movement—that are among his hallmarks. With the slashing opening chords of the "Eroica," Beethoven forever changed the symphony by introducing newfound depths of emotion, colossal power, and sheer scale.
