BEETHOVEN’S EROICA

February 21, 2022 7:30 PM - 8:45 PM Katara Cultural Village, Opera House

The Qatar Philharmonic presents a concert featuring two of Beethoven’s best dramatic works; Leonore Overture No. 3 and Symphony No. 3 in E Flat Major “Eroica Symphony”. Fidelio, originally titled Leonore, is Beethoven’s only opera. Beethoven produced four versions of the overture to Fidelio, though Leonore Overture No. 3 is regarded as the most powerful and theatrical of the overtures. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3, also known as Eroica Symphony due to its supposed heroic nature, premiered in 1805 and was greater and more intense than customary symphonies at the time. The piece is one of Beethoven’s chiefly instrumental works, and is regarded as a turning point in musical history as it marks the beginning of Beethoven’s second period in his career.
