BEETHOVEN 200 YEARS AGO TODAY: Wednesday, March 13, 1822

Today’s Wiener Zeitung includes a large advertisement from Pietro Mechetti art and music dealer, for a Carl Maria von Weber piano concerto, but it is unclear which one, op.11 or op.32. Mechetti also advertises more than two dozen other works, both vocal and instrumental, by Weber, probably capitalizing on the publicity generated by the upcoming concert by Weber scheduled for tomorrow noon.
