San Francisco Symphony Conductor Laureate Herbert Blomstedt leads Beethoven's monumental Eroica Symphony. Originally dedicated to Napoleon Bonaparte in commemoration of his opposition to tyranny, Beethoven crossed out the dedication after Bonaparte became a tyrant himself. Heralding a new era of classical music that showcases the orchestra's expressive range, Beethoven's Third is an epic struggle that culminates in a glorious finale celebrating the undying heroic spirit.

The Thursday Matinee concerts are endowed by a gift in memory of Rhoda Goldman.
