I just bought a framed picture of Beethoven with a letter

Customer Question

I just bought a framed picture of Beethoven with a letter written as a musical sketch to His Royal Highness the Archduke, his signature, and what appears to be the original sheet music signed by him. I am curious, would love to know more about it. I bought it as it touched my heart, my father, pianist, etc., died four years ago, and this piece reminds me of his spirit... anything you're able to share, I will be grateful to learn!

Hello

I wanted to let you know that every expert has looked at this and as of yet are unable to find any information on this. There are a few more that have not been on the site in awhile they may pop on and know this. I just wanted you to know it is being looked into.
