detail of page

British Library Music Facsimiles, III. London, 1980. Oblong, 37 x 28 cm, viii, 40 pp. Beautifully printed duotone of the autograph score, completed in the first half of 1802. Although the manuscript could be considered a faircopy, it appears not to be the source for the first edition issued by the Bureau des Arts et d’Industrie, Vienna, June, 1803, with a dedication to Alexander I, the Russian Czar. That edition contains additional expression marks and trill indications.

Beethoven, Violin Sonata in G major, Op.30, no.3
As in the case of almost every Beethoven autograph there is evidence in the score reproduced here of compositional changes and improvements carried out after he had already begun to write out the final version. Handsomely bound in blue buckram with gold lettering (few copies remaining) $125
