    Beethoven wrote the Elegischer Gesang op. 118 in August/September 1814 in memory of Eleonore von Pasqualati, who had passed away prematurely three years earlier. She was the wife of Baron Johann von Pasqualati, in whose house in Vienna Beethoven lived from 1804 to 1815,with several interruptions. The present Urtext edition follows the musical text of the new Beethoven Complete Edition (G. Henle Verlag). The primary source of the edition is a copy examined by Beethoven, which was presumably made in 1814, shortly after the work was written.
