The ' Fidelio ' Overture is the fourth and last composed by Beethoven for his one opera. He wrote it on the occasion of a revival of the opera in 1814. He had the idea of revising the whole work, hut in the main contented himself with writing this new overture. As a matter of fact, it was not ready for the revival, and another overture was played instead. Nowadays, however, at performances of Fidelio the ' Fidelio ' Overture is played as a prelude to the opera, while the more popular overture, Leonora No. 3, is played later between the acts.

Mozart's Symphony in E flat is scored for an orchestra consisting of strings, one flute, two clarinets, two bassoons, two horns, two trumpets, and timpani. Although composed about three years before his tragic death, and at a time when poverty and ill-health were doing their best to crush his spirit, there is no reflection in the E flat Symphony of his mental tribulation. The music is as happy and gay as anything could be, and if it reflected anything at all, it was the youthful and optimistic side of the composer's nature.
A round-table discussion on cause, effect, and possible remedies between
W. Dallaway , Christopher Norbury , and A. E. R. Brooks
