Cadenza for Rudolph

No other patron and friend of Beethoven's was the recipient of so many dedications as the Archduke Rudolph. Amongst them is that of the Fourth Piano Concerto op. 58, which the Archduke received in 1808. Rudolph was Beethoven's pupil. He not only studied composition with Beethoven but also first and foremost the piano - small wonder that most of the works dedicated to him were for or with piano. In 1809 Beethoven wrote several cadenzas for the Piano Concerto op. 58. Here you can see a cadenza for the first movement of the concerto. The old call number "Beethoven 101" at the top of the first page shows that the manuscript belonged to the Archduke's music collection. It is therefore not unlikely that Beethoven wrote the cadenza for his pupil. (J.R.)
