Fun Facts

  • Hough was one of the youngest students at the Royal Northern College of Music before winning a scholarship to The Juilliard School.
  • The symphony was originally written in honor of Napoleon, who Beethoven believed to be a champion of freedom. When Napoleon crowned himself Emperor of France in 1804, Beethoven was disgusted and changed the name from "The Bonaparte Symphony" to "Eroica."
