Symphony No 3. Op 55
Eroica 1st Movement

Michael Tilson Thomas: It’s in the Eroica that for first time that everyone was convinced that this really is Beethoven’s voice. The exordinary thing about the premier of Beethoven third was that it was done of course in a very small room in the Loffle Palace. But I think the biggest problem that many people had was that it went on much too long, too loud, interfere too much with their conversation , those of them who were not really music fans. They thought it was rather a monstrosity, a great carbuncular symphony.

Nicholas:You can not believe that human being can invent that. As a musician, I must say it is incredible .One can not believe that the melodies are so simple, the material is so simple, every break is simple ,but the building is incredible.
The Eroica was a sensation because of its dimension, a symphony could last half an hour but never an hour, absolutely not. The dimensions of the 1st movement are the dimensions of whole symphony of Mozart or Haydn.
You hear that the development of harmony, the development of melody, the development of richness. There was no symphony before which was so obvious connected with the story. And it tells so much without being dripped out of music

Narrator: The Eroica symphony, the story of a hero, was originally dedicated to Napoleon Bonaparte, the great republican. But when Napoleon crowned himself emperor, Beethoven flew into a rage. The name Bonaparte is so violently erased that there is a hole in the score.

Michael Tilson Thomas : I believe that the Eroica is about Beethoven himself. It’s the first piece in which he clearly shows us the kinds of sounds that appeared in his ears, his deaf noises, which becomes recurring mode in every other piece after this time, and then of course finally the wild blast of movement prior tactical display of counter point on most tribute subject as if say that his mastery’s supreme. He can now take the stages of successor of Mozart and Haydn.
