Beethoven – Sonata No.26 in E-flat Major Piano Sheet Music Beethoven began his Opus 26, his eighth piano sonata in 1801 and finished it the next year. The first performance was given by Beethoven himself at Vienna’s Burgtheater on April 5, 1802. Beethoven dedicated Opus 26 to Baron Nikolaus Zmeskall von Domanovecz, an official at the Hungarian chancellery. Beethoven and Zmeskall first became acquainted in 1797-98. Beethoven enjoyed his company immensely because of his extensive knowledge of music and Beethoven’s interest in Hungarian popular music, particularly that of Beethoven’s own country. Beethoven wrote to Zmeskall on October 30, 1800: “Tell me, my dear Z., whether you have any of those delightful little songs from the Schenk that I liked so much.”
