Program Notes

The Eroica, entitled Marcia funebre, is the second movement of Beethoven's Symphony No. 3. The Symphony No. 3 in E♭ major, Op. 55, is a symphony in four movements by Ludwig van Beethoven.

One of the composer's most celebrated works, this symphony, nicknamed Eroica, is a large-scale composition that marked the beginning of Beethoven's creative middle period.

Composed mainly in 1803–1804, the work was instrumental in breaking the boundaries of form, length, harmony, and perceived emotional and possibly cultural content. It has therefore widely been considered an important landmark in the transition between the Classical and the Romantic era. It is also often considered to be the first Romantic symphony.
