    Leonore Overture No 2 (Luehning) [study score]

    Romantic. Beethoven wrote a total of four overtures for his only opera, Leonore/Fidelio. The so-called Leonore Overture No 2 is first in the series by chronology and was written in 1805 for the premiere of the opera in Vienna. It follows the concept of asummary of integral moments in the subsequent dramatic work, eschewing a formal closing by means of a recapitulation of the exposition. Instead, the double clarion call, which suggests the resolution of the conflict in the opera, leads directly to transition into the coda. Featuring a new preface, it now appears as a study edition prepared on the basis of the musical text of the Beethoven Complete Edition. -the publisher
