Journey to the Lobkowitz Palace in Vienna in 1804, where Beethoven’s “Eroica” Symphony is about to be performed for the first time before a private audience—including the composer’s wealthy patron, the woman he loves, and his former teacher Joseph Haydn. Filmed on location and directed by Simon Cellan Jones, Eroica recreates the moment in music history when everything changed. With a soundtrack by L’Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique conducted by John Eliot Gardiner.
