Ländlerischer Tanz: Newly-Discovered Music by Ludwig van Beethoven

A previously unknown and unpublished piano piece by Ludwig van Beethoven was found by the editor-in-chief of the Wiener Urtext Edition during research in the music collection of the Wienbibliothek im Rathaus in Vienna. The work is notated with sketches by Ludwig van Beethoven from 1790–1792. It is untitled and does not begin at the beginning, but only at the end of a line, immediately following a previous sketch. The 16-bar piece shows the musical character of a Ländler (18th century European folk dance). Beethoven noted the complete melody voice of his piece, even reworking it in a few places, and the accompaniment is written in abbreviated form.
