BEETHOVEN’S “EROICA”

HOPE FOR A BETTER WORLD: BEETHOVEN’S “EROICA”

Maison symphonique de Montréal

Driven by a desire for a more just world, Beethoven originally dedicated his “Eroica” symphony to Napoleon, whom he believed embodied the anti-monarchist ideals of the French Revolution. But when Napoleon crowned himself emperor, the composer later scratched out the dedication in disgust.
