BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major, Op. 55, Eroica
STRAUSS: Ein Heldenleben, Op. 40
Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin returns to lead the fabulous Philadelphians in a program of two heroic works by Strauss and Beethoven. Beethoven’s score was originally dedicated to Napoleon, but when the military leader declared himself Emperor, Beethoven went to the table in a rage, seized the title-page, tore it in half and threw it on the floor. The page was later re-copied and the work renamed Sinfonia Eroica.
