Exercises in Strict Counterpoint, Hess 234 (1794-1795).

After Haydn departed for England in 1794 (and possibly before then), Beethoven also took counterpoint lessons from Albrechtsberger, who was a noted authority at the time, and about whom Beethoven spoke in reverence in later years. Approximately 125 of these exercises exist; Nottebohm published 8 two-voice, 9 three-voice and 6 four-voice exercises, all of which are presented here. We give both Beethoven's original versions, and the versions with Albrechtsberger's corrections.
