Album Summary

>Beethoven, Ludwig van : Symphony no 3 in E flat major, Op. 55 "Eroica"
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...'Eroica' is a semi-authentic dramatized account of the circumstances under which Beethoven's Third Symphony was unleashed upon an Austrian aristocracy... This is a very entertaining and superbly acted play. The backdrop is a first rehearsal of the 'Eroica' at the Lobkowitz palace. In a large drawing room, the musicians and illustrious guests assemble. The musicians are non other than the members of the Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romanticque, gussied up in full 19th-century Austrian costume. It must have been a real challenge to play in those ruffled cuffs, vests, and heavily adorned jackets, but they manage quite well... This Prix d'Italia award-winning film from the BBC is urgently recommended." -Fanfare
