First edition of the Dressler Variations WoO 63
 
Erstausgabe WoO 63  
 
In 1782 Beethoven's first composition was published by a Mannheim publisher: Piano Variations on a March by Dressler. Beethoven's teacher Christian Gottlob Neefe wrote about his pupil in the "Magazin der Musik" in 1783 with reference to the composition. He praised the twelve-year-old's promising talent, who could "surely become a second Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, if he should progress as he has begun".
