Beethoven‘s first three symphonies can be seen as experiments in the heroic style. What is intimated in the First Symphony (1800) in a new firmness of musical tone and the replacement of dancelike, elegantly flowing intonations by scherzo and march, takes on more concrete form in the Second Symphony (1803). This is a monumental symphony – a fact that escapes today’s listeners for the simple reason that it was followed by the Third, which is even more expansive in its design. This Third Symphony (1805), called “Eroica”, is approximately twice as long as any symphony by Haydn and one of most popular orchestral works by Beethoven.
