Symphony No 3 in E flat Major, op. 55
by Ludwig van Beethoven
Bayerisches Staatsorchester
Wolfgang Sawallisch, conductor
München, Prinregenten-Theater 1988

Ludwig van Beethoven‘s Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major (Op. 55), also known as the Eroica (Italian for “heroic”), is a musical work marking the full arrival of the composer’s “middle-period,” a series of unprecedented large scale works of emotional depth and structural rigor.[1][2]

The symphony is widely regarded as a mature expression of the classical style of the late eighteenth century that also exhibits defining features of the romantic style that would hold sway in the nineteenth century. The Third was begun immediately after the Second, completed in August 1804, and first performed 7 April 1805.[3]
