    the young Beethoven was responsible for taking over when Neefe was away and when he could not accompany Beethoven biographer Alexander Thayer writes In those days every orchestra was provided with a harpsichord or pianoforte seated at which the director guided the performance playing from the score Here then was in part the origin of that marvelous power with which in later years Beethoven astonished his contemporaries of reading and playing the most difficult and involved scores at first sight Thayer suggests that Beethoven s earliest keyboard lessons as a child were on the pianoforte but one of the few witnesses of these lessons only states that they were at the Klavier the generic German word for keyboard History has not recorded whether the Beethoven family had an early fortepiano harpsichord or clavichord at home The title pages of Beethoven s earliest keyboard works read as follows 1782 Variations pour le Clavecin Sur une Marche de Mr Dresler Variations for the Harpsichord on a March by Mr Dres s ler WoO 63 published in 1782 1782 83 Drei Sonaten fürs Klavier Three Sonatas for Keyboard WoO 47 published in 1783 1783 Rondo Allegretto WoO 48 published in 1783 Rondo Allegretto WoO 49 published in 1783 1783 un Concert pour le Clavecin ou Fortepiano WoO 4 published in 1890 title on the solo keyboard part of the manuscript 1785 trios quatuors p o ur le clave c in violino viola e Basso WoO 36 published in 1828 title from the manuscript Thus the earliest printings and ms of his keyboard works state that they are either for harpsichord Klavier keyboard or fortepiano In fact Beethoven s keyboard works published during his First Period which ends in 1802 frequently list the harpsichord as the first possible instrument see the entries in bold below This is a list of all of Beethoven s works with opus numbers for keyboard alone or with other instruments during the First Period Opus 1 trios published in 1795 Pour le Piano Forte Violin et Violoncelle Opus 2 sonatas published in 1795 Pour le Clavecin ou Piano Forte Opus 5 sonatas published in 1797 pour Le Clavecin ou Piano Forte avec un Violoncelle Opus 6 sonata four hands published in 1797 Pour le Clavecin ou Forte Piano Opus 7 published in 1797 pour le Clavecin ou Piano Forte Opus 10 published in 1798 pour le Clavecin ou Piano Forte Opus 11 published in 1798 pour le Piano Forte avec un Clarinette ou Violon et Violoncelle Opus 12 violin and piano published in 1798 99 Per il Clavicembalo o Forte Piano Opus 13 sonata published in 1799 Pour le Clavecin ou Piano Forte Opus 14 sonatas published in 1799 pour le Piano Forte Opus 15 1st Concerto published in 1801 pour le Forte Piano Opus 16 wind quintet published in 1801 pour le Forte Piano avec Opus 17 horn sonata published in 1801 pour le Forte Piano avec Opus 19 2nd Concerto published in 1801 pour le Pianoforte Opus
