Movie Info

British filmmaker Simon Cellan Jones directs the BBC drama Eroica, starring Ian Hart as Ludwig van Beethoven. Shot on digital video, this TV movie concerns the first performance of Beethoven's "Symphony No. 3" on June 9, 1804, in Vienna. Prince Lobkowitz (Jack Davenport) has invited all his friends to his palace to watch Beethoven perform his new piece with a full orchestra. Among the aristocratic attendees are Count Dietrichstein (Tim Pigott-Smith), Countess Brunsvik (Claire Skinner), and composer Josef Haydn (Frank Finlay). The actual musical score is performed by the Orchestre Revolutionaire et Romantique, under the direction of John Eliot Gardiner. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Beethoven: Eroica

  • Jan 01, 2011
    This film overlays a performance of Beethoven's 3rd symphony with a bit of imaginative history of what the very first performance of this symphony might have been like. Hard to get away with a movie with no plot, no special effects, and almost no characters, scenery or dialogue. Yet this movie does just that based on its soundtrack, and the artful use of close-up shots that display the emotion one of Beethoven's masterpieces brings to its listeners. An homage to one of the greatest revolutions in music.
