ludwig.jpg (6621 bytes)Ludwig van Beethoven composed his Sonata for Horn and Piano in one day.  He premiered the work with the handhorn virtuoso Giovanni Punto (Johann Stich) in the year 1800.  At the first performance he improvised most of the piano part, having had only enough time to write out the horn part and a rough outline of the piano part.
     The critic, an admirer of the famous Punto, wrote: "...as usual, Mr. Punto played brilliantly, but who is this Beethover (sic) fellow anyway?"
