Beethoven took a massive stride forward in the development of the symphonic form with the ’Eroica’. Not only is the work written on an unprecedented scale, it also lays the very foundations of Romanticism in music.The symphony mirrors Beethoven’s own emergence from despair and he used it to symbolize mankind’s capacity for greatness. He initially dedicated the score to Napoleon whom embodied his view of greatness. However, when Napoleon crowned himself Emperor, Beethoven furiously removed the dedication from the score.

"the clarity is exemplary ...Haitink’s performance has a magnificently strong forward flow to it ... The orchestral detail is excellent and enhances the subtlety of Haitink’s phrasing"


Classical Source.com - July 2006

"The vitues of Bernard Haitink’s Beethoven cycle at the Barbican are well summarised by this performance of the Eroica ... [he] puts Beethoven first in every aspect, giving the first movement a spontaneity deriving from its rhythmic vitality... the finale sweeps towards its climax on a tide of orchestral eloquence ... such as the LSO reserves for its favourite conductors"

Sunday Telegraph - 13 August 2006

"an amazing level of audible detail in even the most heavily scored passages ... I respect both Haitink for his willingness to rethink his interpretation and the LSO for its evident enthusiasm in giving him what he requires"
ClassicsToday.com (US), 13 August 2006

ClassicsToday.com - August 2006

"simply masterful Beethoven ... Capped by a magisterial account of the Ninth Symphony, this is the Beethoven set for our time. Even if you already have umpteen other recordings of these works, you really owe it to yourself to hear this new set. It’s a deeply satisfying musical experience"

Chicago Tribune - 13 October 2006
