The article states, "the final version of the overture to Leonora (that known as No. 3) is the most gigantic single orchestral movement ever based on the sonata style." I can't come up with any interpretation of this statement that makes sense. The first movement of "Eroica" is longer, and if you look later than Leonora #3, you also get the first movement of the Ninth, never mind the massive sonata structures of Mahler (e.g. Symphony #3:I). I can't correct the sentence without knowing what was intended. 126.96.36.199 05:18, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

- Musical overtures have also appeared in motion pictures, mostly science fiction movies. Notable examples include 2001: A Space Odyssey, Space Cruiser Yamato (which had the distinction of a vocal overture instead of instrumental)Star Trek:The Motion Picture?, and Disney's The Black Hole.
Does this mean that these films start with a bit of music over a black screen, with nothing else happening at all (no credits, no establishing shots, nothing at all)? (I know 2001 does, but I've not seen the others.) If so, we should probably make that clearer. --Camembert

Is it just I, or is this article POV? Maybe we should fix it up a bit.--Stratford15 21:16, 12 August 2006 (UTC)
I am going to delete the trivia section of this article. All video games have introductory audio tracks; simply because that track is entitled "overture" does not make its game notable. Mbkatz 11:37, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
