“ The autograph of Beethoven’s violin concerto is primarily written in an ink which begins to pale; at the same time it is one of the most interesting of Beethoven’s autographs since it not only shows the usual correction during and after the writing, but also the first steps of the revision of the violin part and drafts for an adaptation as piano part …

“ The pale colors of the mainly used ink, pale-brown on yellowish paper, and the later entries in deeper inks, with red chalk and with pencil … (the facsimile) reproduces down to the most delicate shades with such ‘faithfulness’ that one could take even the drafts in pencil for written in pencil indeed … ”

(Ludwig Finscher, Musica, May/June 1980, p. 304).
