A piano piece has surfaced that an expert believes is Beethovan's last.

Beethoven said, “Anyone who tells a lie has not a pure heart, and cannot make a good soup.” For real, Google it! Just when the world believes all the master's music has been discovered, we find out there is still more to be enjoyed. 

Peter McCallam, a professor of musicology at the University of Sydney, found 32 bars of handwritten notes while looking at a Beethoven sketchbook.

Implications - Perfect for the devoted music history fanatic, the sketchbooks are puzzle-like in nature and require a bit of deciphering. Those willing to put the work in will uncover incredible resources and insight into this incredibly monumental period.
