Product Description


technical comment

  • ‘‘Jordi Savall captures the work’s potent energy to perfection, the whiff of gunpowder hanging in the air."
    James Jolly, Gramophone

    This is music to shock, arouse and thrill — the only thing it won’t do is leave you unmoved. Sitting like a gate-keeper to the new century, a century that saw more change than any before it, Beethoven’s 'Eroica' (1803-5) changed the history of music. Take note, it seems to say: Man has the power to challenge Fate and sometimes even win (the French Revolution was still echoing in the mind).
    In 1994 Jordi Savall conducted Beethoven's 'Eroica' symphony with Le Concert des Nations (a group he founded in 1989 for Baroque music), winning praise for this well-researched and groundbreaking interpretation.

    "Unusual repertoire for Savall perhaps but he delivers a performance full of thrilling perceptions and some amazing sounds. Definitely one to sample." Gramophone, [anniversary survey on Beethoven's 'Eroica']
