Misc. Comments

Count Fries also figures indirectly but interestingly in the biography of Giovanni (Giambattista) Casti, a poet whose work may have influenced, according to Alfred Einstein, Mozart's groundbreaking operas - see Mozart: His Character, His Work, pp.425–426. (Edit: that historical reference may refer to Fries' father Johann, who died in 1785 (in fact a list at MozartForum.com lists Johann as among the subscribers to Mozart's concerts- so that the statement that Casti's companion Count von Fries was the same as the dedicatee of Beethoven's works falls on the shoals of death dates; one was father, Johann, the other was Moritz. (Moritz was also the dedicatee of several sonatas and a symphony by Beethoven.)

Not clear whether the two autograph sketches mentioned at RISM are dated, but the page at Raptus gives fairly good evidence that the work was composed by October 1801 and published by Breitkopf in 1802.
