About this collection

Album published in 1841 in Vienna by P. Mechetti containing piano works by eleven composers. The album was sold in Germany to raise funds for the new Beethoven monument erected in Bonn in 1845. This publisher's presentation copy contains a frontispiece illustration of a monument by J.N. Geiger and drawings of Beethoven's birthplace, the Schwarzspanierhaus where he died in Vienna in 1827, and a drawing of his tombstone. In addition to the piano transcription by Franz Liszt of Beethoven's Funeral March from the Eroica Symphony, and the first edition of Mendelssohn's Variations serieuses, the album contains works by Chopin, Czerny, Doehler, Henselt, Kalbrenner, Moscheles, Taubert, and Thalberg.
