The Coriolan Overture (German: Coriolan-Ouvertüre or Ouvertüre zu Coriolan), Op. 62, is a composition written by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1807 for Heinrich Joseph von Collin's 1804 tragedy Coriolan. The structure and themes of the overture follow the play very generally. The main C minor theme represents Coriolanus' resolve and war-like tendencies (he is about to invade Rome), while the more tender E-flat major theme represents the pleadings of his mother to desist
With the Oberon, I was reminded of Teldec's video, Legendary Conductors of a Golden Era, where Mengelberg is seen conducting the work at a special locale near Paris. That performance is even more excitingly conducted than this one. The cut scherzo from Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream is probably the only weakness of the set, the playing not being up to snuff.

Over the course of fifty years, Willem Mengelberg shaped the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra into one of the greatest ensembles in the world. But things didn’t end well.

During Willem Mengelberg’s fifty-year tenure, leading composers conducted the orchestra on more than one occasion. Through the years, the orchestra has continued its collaboration with composers such as George Benjamin, Oliver Knussen, Tan Dun and Thomas Adès, who over the last few years have followed in the footsteps of other conducting composers like Richard Strauss, Gustav Mahler, Claude Debussy, Igor Stravinsky, Bruno Maderna, Witold Lutosławski, Otto Ketting, Luciano Berio, Pierre Boulez, Hans Werner Henze and John Adams. The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra has always collaborated with world-renowned guest conductors and specialists. Programming is based on two essential elements: tradition and renewal. The orchestra has long been praised for its performances of the music of Strauss, Mahler and Bruckner.
