of the great composer's watershed symphony, Eroica.

Third Symphony was first played through in a private rehearsal at
the palace of the composer's patron, Prince Lobkowitz, in Vienna.

a real-time performance which explores the story behind the symphony,
the composer's passion for his work and his unrequited love for
an unattainable woman.
