Composer: Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827)Composed: 1807First performed: 1st March 1807,  private concert in the home of Prince Franz Joseph von LobkowitzGenres: Orchestral » Overtures Lyricist: r Heinrich Joseph von Collin

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.
