This Day in History:
The New York Times Begins Publication of the Pentagon Papers (1971)

The Pentagon Papers were top secret government documents detailing US involvement in SE Asia from WWII to 1968. In 1971, a former government employee leaked portions of the 47-volume study, which revealed both miscalculation and deception on the part of US policymakers, to The New York Times, which began publishing articles about it. Citing national security, the Justice Department obtained an injunction against further publication, and the case went to the Supreme Court. How did it rule?

Watch “Beethoven – Egmont Overture, op. 84, Bernstein, Vienna Philharmonic” on YouTube



Egmont (Beethoven

Lamoral Count of Egmont

Egmont, Op. 84 by Ludwig van Beethoven, is a set of incidental music pieces for the 1787 play of the same name by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.[1] It consists of an overture followed by a sequence of nine pieces for soprano, male narrator, and full symphony orchestra. (The male narrator is optional; he is not used in the play and does not appear in all recordings of the complete incidental music.) Beethoven wrote it between October 1809 and June 1810, and it was premiered on 15 June 1810.

The subject of the music and dramatic narrative is the life and heroism of 16th-century nobleman Lamoral, Count of Egmont from the Low Countries. It was composed during the Napoleonic Warswhen the First French Empire had extended its domination over vast swathes of Europe. Beethoven had famously expressed his great outrage over Napoleon Bonaparte’s decision to crown himself Emperor in 1804, furiously scratching out his name in the dedication of the Eroica Symphony. In the music for Egmont, Beethoven expressed his own political concerns through the exaltation of the heroic sacrifice of a man condemned to death for having taken a valiant stand against oppression. The Overture became an unofficial anthem of the 1956 Hungarian revolution.

Beethoven composed Klärchen’s songs “Die Trommel gerühret” (“The drum is a-stirring”) and “Freudvoll und leidvoll” (“Joyful and woeful”) with Austrianactress Antonie Adamberger specifically in mind, and she often spoke enthusiastically of her collaboration with him.[2] The music was praised by E.T.A. Hoffmann for its poetry, and Goethe himself declared that Beethoven had expressed his intentions with “a remarkable genius.”

The overture is powerful and expressive, one of the last works of Beethoven’s middle period. It has become as famous a composition as the Coriolan Overture and is in a style similar to the Fifth Symphony, which he had completed two years earlier.

Outline of sectionsEdit

The incidental music comprises the following sections, among which the overture, the lieder Die Trommel gerühret, Freudvoll und leidvoll and Klärchens Todare particularly well-known:

  1. Overture: Sostenuto, ma non troppo – Allegro
  2. Lied: “Die Trommel gerühret”
  3. Entracte: Andante
  4. Entracte: Larghetto
  5. Lied: “Freudvoll und leidvoll”
  6. Entracte: Allegro – Marcia
  7. Entracte: Poco sostenuto e risoluto
  8. Klärchens Tod
  9. Melodram: “Süßer Schlaf”
  10. Siegessymphonie (symphony of victory): Allegro con brio

Cultural influencesEdit

The Hungarian film Overture by János Vadász, which won the 1965 Cannes Film Festival’s Short Film Palme d’Or, uses the complete Egmont Overture as the soundtrack for a series of images featuring a hatching bird, referencing the rebellious nature of Egmont fighting for freedom despite all barriers. The film, nominated for Academy Award for Best Documentary (Short Subject) is often considered one of the most influential short films in film history and described as “among the most ingenious pairings of music and image in the history of the festival.”[3]
