Prometheus Overture Op 43 Beethoven Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
It is hardly well-known that Beethoven actually wrote some ballet music. Prometheus is the ballet for which he wrote the score, and it was produced for the first time at the Imperial Hof Theater, Vienna, in 1801,

The overture opens with a brief adagio consisting of a few bars of slow tutti chords, followed by a melody for oboe. This is followed by an allegro, opening with a quick passage in the first violins, accompanied by the other strings. After a vigorous repeat the second subject appears in the wind instruments. The theme is brieftly treated and followed by some vigorous passages. The violin theme repeats and leads to an impressive subject in the basses. The themes are then repeated in order and a stirring Coda closes the overture.
