Opus

L, = work. The number a composition is given on publication. For the most part, Beethoven undertook this himself and only occasionally did the publisher assign one. Beethoven is one of the first to count chronologically, so that the numbers can be used as a rough guideline when dating his works. 138 works of Beethovens have opus numbers.
