Notes & Reviews:

Bernard Haitink's LSO Live Beethoven symphony cycle continues with a revelatory performance of the 'Eroica.' Beethoven took a massive stride forward in the development of the symphonic form with his third symphony. Not only is the work written on an unprecedented scale, it also lays the very foundations of Romanticism in music. "His [Haitink's] grasp of structure of these great works seems as complete as ever, but there is now a spring in his step, a renewed energy in his propulsion...he is a different, energized man, caught up in the thrill of the moment." -The Sunday Times
