    For the Fidelio Overture , which was written at lightning speed in 1814, there is a copy of the score in the Austrian National Library which offers a reliable basis for a text-critical edition.

    To this day, the two Major Fidelio overtures are still performed from music texts that go back to the imprecise and corrupted first editions of the parts. in the meantime, however, the state of the sources for both works has significantly improved through many findings.
