This chapter concerns Beethoven's Piano Trio in F Minor, which would have become one of Beethoven's major chamber works had it been completed. It first examines the sketches in Beethoven's large-format sketchbook from the years 1815 and 1816, referred to here as the “Scheide Sketchbook” after the library of William Scheide at Princeton, New Jersey, where it is held. The chapter then places these sketches into relationship with the most central document for the trio—the extended draft for the first movement, presented here in facsimile and transcription sound recording at the University of Illinois Press website. The final sections of the chapter assess the place of this major unfinished project in Beethoven's creative development and its affinities with his other, familiar works in this distinctive key.

Keywords:   Ludwig van Beethoven, Piano Trio in F Minor, Scheide Sketchbook, creative development, major chamber works
