The year 1802 was a decisive one for Beethoven: in the autumn, he wrote the ‘Heiligenstadt Testament’, in which he clearly expressed his awareness of the outcome of his inexorably increasing deafness. At almost the same time, he told his friend Krumpholz that, ‘not satisfied’ with his ‘work so far’, he was planning to embark on ‘a new path’. It so happens that the works here, skilfully grouped together by Andreas Staier, correspond precisely to that new direction.
