The Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam, conducted by Mengelberg: Overture, Leonore No. 3

The composition of the opera Fidelio, which was commissioned by Mozart's old friend Schikaneder, who was manager of the Theater an der Wien in Vienna, occupied Beethoven during the period 1805-6. As in the case of most of his big works, Beethoven appears to have taken endless trouble over the moulding and polishing of his first and only opera. It is undoubtedly one of the greatest operas of the nineteenth century and contains some of Beethoven's finest music, as the present programme of excerpts will show.


Conducted By: Bruno Walter
Bass-Baritone: Friedrich Schorr
Soprano: Frieda Leider
