These two short, unpretentious sonatinas in G major and F major were published during Beethoven's lifetime in ca. 1807. Since then, they have become firmly established in the repertoire for beginners due to their striking beauty. However, it is very unlikely that they were actually written by Beethoven, and for this reason, they do not have opus numbers but instead are listed in his catalog of works as “Anhang/Appendix 5.” Walther Lampe provided the fingerings for this Urtext edition; Lampe was a piano pupil of Clara Schumann, and in turn taught Günter Henle, founder of the music publishing company. Henle described Lampe as an “outstanding performing pianist.” Moreover, he was one of the leading piano pedagogues of his time.
