Beethoven works, by number (Opus # and WoO #)

For cataloguing purposes, pieces by Beethoven are identified in four ways:

  • by opus number. These were assigned by his publishers, and follow the order in which his works were published, rather than the order they were written. This is why, for example, the Wind Octet of 1792 can be Opus 103, when Opus 102 and Opus 104 were written in 1815 and 1817 respectively. Everything up to and including Opus 135 was published in Beethoven's lifetime; later numbers were published posthumously.
  • by WoO (Werke ohne Opuszahl - literally, "works without opus number") number. These were assigned by Georg Kinsky and Hans Halm (who took over from Kinsky after his death) in their 1955 catalogue of Beethoven's works.
  • by AnH number - these are works listed in the appendix (German: Anhang, hence the abbreviation) of Kinsky's catalogue as being probably spurious. Some of these have since been shown to be authored by Beethoven.
  • by Hess (abbreviated to H) number. These were assigned by Willy Hess in a listing published shortly after Kinsky's which includes pieces not included in the 19th century Complete Edition published by Breitkopf and Haertel. Hess includes many more fragmentary works than does Kinsky. Many pieces have both WoO and H numbers - in these cases, WoO numbers are generally favoured over Hess numbers.

There is also the Biamonti catalogue, compiled by Giovanni Biamonti and published in 1968. This combines the pieces with opus numbers and all the works from Kinsky's and Hess' catalogue with hitherto uncatalogued fragments to make a single chronological listing. Biamonti numbers are not very often referred to, however. Opus, from the Latin word opus meaning work, is usually used in the sense of a work of art. In this sense the plural of opus, opera, is used to refer to the genre of music drama. ... 1792 was a leap year starting on Sunday (see link for calendar). ... April 5-12: Mount Tambora explodes, changing climate. ... 1817 was a common year starting on Wednesday (see link for calendar). ... 1955 (MCMLV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ... Willy Hess (1906 - 1997) was a Swiss musicologist, composer, and famous Beethoven scholar. ... The Beethoven Gesamtausgabe is the first collected edition of the works of Ludwig van Beethoven. ... Breitkopf & Härtel is the worlds oldest music publishing house. ... 1968 (MCMLXVIII) was a leap year starting on Monday. ...


Most of Beethoven's best-known pieces have opus numbers, but there are exceptions, one of the most notable being "Für Elise", WoO 59. Für Elise (German: For Elise) is the popular name of the Bagatelle in A minor, WoO 59, a famous piece of music for solo piano by Ludwig van Beethoven, written in about 1810. ...

Ludwig van Beethoven Biography (1945 words)
The few works that date from this period are often of an experimental character, including the song cycle "An die ferne Geliebte" and the piano sonata Opus 90: these works served as inspirations to the later generation of Romantic composers.
Beethoven continued to expand the "development" section of works, whereas in the early works of Haydn and Mozart, Beethoven's major immediate predecessors and influences, the development section of a sonata form was quite brief (though over time they enlarged it).
Although Beethoven wrote many beautiful and lyrical melodies, another radical innovation of his music, compared especially to that of Mozart and Haydn, is his extensive use of forceful, marked, and even stark rhythmic patterns throughout his compositions and, in particular, in his themes and motifs, some of which are primarily rhythmic rather than melodic.
