Inspired by acts of heroism, Beethoven's Symphony No. 3 broke the mould of the classical symphony, and with its scale and orchestration is considered the first symphony of the romantic era. If his first two symphonies hinted at the revolutionary character of their creator, the 'Eroica' unleashed a symphonic energy regarded as a turning point in musical history.

It is coupled here with the Overture to Beethoven's only opera, Fidelio, taken from the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s highly acclaimed performance at the BBC Proms in 2015, conducted by Vladimir Jurowski..
