BEETHOVEN 200 YEARS AGO TODAY: Thursday, November 28, 1822

In today’s Wiener Zeitung at p.1096, S.A. Steiner repeats his ad for Rossini’s complete operas arranged for Csakan, and adds Rossini’s song Farewell to Vienna to the mix. Among other operas that are offered by Steiner today is Medea by Luigi Cherubini. That composer was cited by Beethoven as his favorite living composer (after himself, of course).
