The manuscript Violin Concerto Opus 61 is the autograph score by Ludwig van Beethoven for his concerto in D major written in great haste on December 23, 1806. Violinist Franz Clement claimed he had to sightread the piece for its premier that night in the Theater an der Wien in Vienna. That performance was poorly received, and Beethoven's subsequent efforts to reduce the orchestration to a piano accompaniment are visible within the manuscript. The work was rediscovered in 1844, after Beethoven's death, and has since become a beloved staple of the violin repertoire.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.
