Schubert's 'Unfinished' Symphony No. 8 from 1822 comprises, instead of the usual four-movement structure, only two movements. Music historians have come up with many different hypotheses as to the reason it remained unfinished, but even today, we still do not know for certain. The work confronts the listener with the duality of a dark, tragic and fatalistic style combined with mellow lyricism. The four movements of the Symphony No. 3, which was composed between 1802 and 1804, are a portrai...t of a hero.
The opening movement of the first movement returns in gloriously transfigured form at its end. This is followed by a scherzo, a funeral march and, finally, a movement of variations - including one in a Hungarian verbunkos style - on a German dance tune. Beethoven originally subtitled the symphony 'Bonaparte', but changed this to 'Eroica' after Napoleon crowned himself emperor.
