In 1803, Beethoven, an ardent champion of Liberty and Brotherhood of Man, felt so invigorated by Napoleon's victory over tyranny, he invented a new kind of music: more expansive, more thrilling, more heroic. But then Napoleon crowned himself emperor. Beethoven was crushed. He removed "Bonaparte" from the title page of his Third Symphony and gave to humanity this majestic essay on freedom.
