Egmont Overture Op 84 Beethoven Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Beethoven's direction for this overture is Sostenuto, ma non troppo – Allegro. He wrote it in 1787 as part of the incidental music for Goethe's play. In this play, the Count of Egmont, a Dutch Nobleman, made a valiant stand against oppression for which he was condemned to death. Beethoven admired these sentiments, as he was disgusted with Napoleon Bonaparte, who had crowned himself Emperor and was despotically advancing over all of Europe during this time, the period of the Napoleonic wars.
