Overture to Coriolan


Dear Followers,

we continue today our special Famous Overtures, here at Musica in Extenso with a classical piece from the genious composer, Ludwig van Beethoven. 

Today on Musica in Extenso:

Ludwig van Beethoven:

Overture to “Egmont” op. 24

Conductor: Kurt Masur

A powerful, dramatic and expressive work, that was written as a set of incidental music pieces for the 1787 play of the same name by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, between October 1809 and June 1810. 

We can observe, that the composer focused on a very impressive orchestration and an authentic sounding experience. The overture is fulfilled with dramatic lines. This overture appears very frequently in concert halls and it has become as famous a composition as the Coriolan Overture.

This day is very special for us, because today we reached 2000 Followers! We hope that we will keep in touch also in the future! Thank you for your kind support!

Stay tuned, as usual! - Editor-in-Chief
