Notes & Reviews:
Beethoven had begun composing his only opera in 1804, and it was performed for the first time in the early summer of 1814 in the form with which we are familiar today. However, it's history was long and complicated. "Leonore" was premiered in 1805. For the second run of the opera, performed in March of 1806, Beethoven wrote the second Leonore Overtre, corrected mistakes and fine tuned instrumentation and expression. This is the world premiere recording of that 1806 "Leonore".
