Comments:Beethoven wrote his Overture to Coriolan early in 1807. This was the same year he composed much of his Fifth Symphony, and the two works convey a similar sense of dramatic struggle and elemental force. The inspiration for this overture was not Shakespeare's Coriolanus, as one might suppose, but a drama based on the same story by Heinrich von Collin.
