December 16 – Allegro and Menuett by Beethoven

Happy Birthday to Ludwig van Beethoven, born on this day in 1770! It was supposedly written as a souvenir to his friend, J.M. Degenhart, on the occasion of Beethoven’s departure from his hometown in Bonn. This piece, written in 1792, is a charming display of young Beethoven’s early classical style.
