Sketches

For nearly all of his compositions, Beethoven noted down ideas, drafts and concepts that he kept with him throughout his life. Several thousand sheets (70 sketch booklets) as well as single pages have been preserved – more than from any other composer. There are various ways for naming the sketch books: the name of the previous owner, the storage location, the library shelf mark, the creation time or the content.
