On demand: Beethoven's Symphony no. 3 in E flat major “Eroica”

Bergen Philharmonic OrchestraRecorded at Grieg Hall (Grieghallen), Bergen, Norway

Longer, louder and more arresting than anything that had gone before it, Beethoven’s Third Symphony left audiences dumbfounded when it was first performed in 1805.

Over two centuries on, it is one of the most cherished symphonies of all time and a piece that encapsulates ideals of liberty with endurance and fortitude. Ludovic Morlot conducts the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra in Beethoven’s ‘heroic’ symphony and brings with him music shaped by his native France.

Filmed in February 2019.
