Enamored with the ideals of the French Revolution and Napoleon’s emboldened vision of Europe’s future, Beethoven dedicated his third symphony to the man, naming the masterwork, Bonaparte. But when news arrived of the squat-statured general’s proclamation as the new emperor of the French, the maestro, repulsed with betrayal, tore the original score’s title page to scraps, and retitled it Sinfonia Eroica, the “Heroic Symphony.” Today, pianist Erika Nickrenz, violinist Susie Park and cellist Sara Sant’Ambrogio claim the title for their Grammy-nominated outfit, the Eroica Trio. Bound for Marin, the group is scheduled to play a wide range of heir classically concocted selections, including works from Gaspar Cassadó, Shostakovich and Ravel. Experience this world-renowned act on Sunday, March 25, at Mt. Tamalpais United Methodist Church. 410 Sycamore Ave., Mill Valley. 5pm. $15—$30. 415.381.4453.
