The Eroica: City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO)
Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony changed the course of musical history. But it’s not just a thrilling musical portrait of this turbulent moment in history; it’s also a profoundly moving human drama, a statement of Beethoven’s undying faith in Man.
Delve behind the notes in the latest of the CBSO’s Tuned In concerts, as the BBC’s Stephen Johnson – assisted on stage by Andris Nelsons and the full CBSO – uncovers the incredible story of this work, and shows exactly how Beethoven can still manage to blow audiences backwards, 200 years on.
Founded in 1920, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra has always had an illustrious career. In fact, the first concert was conducted by Sir Edward Elgar. The orchestra has grown into a 90-piece ensemble with a worldwide reputation.
