Well lovely lovely Ludwig Van wrote many masterpieces starting in the early 1800s, so the bicentenial of many of these works is fast approaching. The problem is: what should we use for a date? Timelines such as www.raptusassociation.org/beets_works.htm list rough date of composition, followed by date of first performance plus date of formal publication. What do you guys think we should use as a bicentenial date for these works? I for one would like to throw a party for each of the major works. It doesn't get any better than this.
