Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 3 in E flat major (Op. 55), also known as the Eroica (Italian for "heroic"), is a musical work marking the full arrival of the composer's "middle-period," a series of unprecedented large scale works of emotional depth and structural rigor
The symphony is widely regarded as a mature expression of the classical style of the late eighteenth century that also exhibits defining features of the romantic style that would hold sway in the nineteenth century.

The piece consists of four movements:
Allegro con brio
Marcia funebre: Adagio assai in C minor
Scherzo: Allegro vivace
Finale: Allegro molto
The performance time is about 50 minutes.
