Beethoven Symphonies 8 & 3 (Eroica), Third Piano Concerto

BEETHOVEN
Symphony No. 8
Piano Concerto No. 3
Symphony No. 3, Eroica

History changed the night in 1805 that Beethoven premiered his Symphony No. 3, and composers ever since have measured their works against his path-breaking Third.

The Eroica, full of the revolution and hope then sweeping Europe, is almost a concert unto itself. Paired with it here, the light-hearted Symphony No. 8–which Beethoven thought was one of his very best works, and the Piano Concerto No. 3–with its passages that simply melt with beauty.
