Friday, May 1 - Saturday, May 2 at the Pabst Theater
Beethoven experienced an on-again-off-again admiration for Napoleon Bonaparte, resulting in the composer famously ripping up the dedication page to his Third Symphony, initially named for Napoleon. Beethoven’s revised title “Eroica” (“Heroic”) suits this music; the Third is a grand symphony of tension, energy and triumph.
