Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL

THERE are two monuments to Count Egmont, the patriot of the Netherlands ; one is the statue of him that was erected at Brussels some sixty years ago (which many listeners will have seen); the other is Goethe's tragedy bearing his name, for the stage presentation of which Beethoven wrote music-an Overture and a good many incidental pieces, which all finely match the dramatic story. The Overture is full of the pride and heroism of Egmont.
