BEETHOVEN 200 YEARS AGO TODAY: Friday, September 27, 1822

Not to be outdone by Diabelli’s “corrected edition” of Beethoven’s sonata #31, op.110, advertised first on September 19, in today’s Wiener Zeitung at p.892, Johann Cappi advertises a “corrected and inexpensive edition” of the same sonata. Cappi advertises his version at 2 florins, undercutting the 3 florins charged for the same sonata by Diabelli. Cappi also advertises Beethoven’s sonata #30, op.109.
