Egmont Overture Op. 84 by : Helmut Hell : Ludwig van Beethoven
When Beethoven received a commission from Vienna's Burgtheater to composer stage music for Goethe's tragedy Egmont in 1809; he viewed it as a great honor. The impetus would have been all the stronger since the drama; about a Dutch nobleman who falls victim to a plot by a Spanish ruler; from the outset provided for music at several points. Beethoven repeatedly declared later on that he received no honorarium from the theatre's management; but had written the music “solely out of love for the poet.” The overture became separated from the rest of the incidental music very early on; it was separately published and soon performed as a concert piece independent of the stage tragedy. Henle now issues it as a study score based on the text of the Beethoven Complete Edition; and with a new preface.
