Ludwig van Beethoven wrote two rondos for solo piano in 1797.

The Rondo in C Major, Op. 51, No. 1

The Rondo in G Major, Op. 51, No. 2 bears a dedication to Countess Henriette von Lichnowsky in later editions.

Artaria originally published both Rondos without dedications in October 1797. During this time, the composer also wrote the Op. 129 Rondo "Rage over a Lost Penny," and the three Piano Sonatas, Op. 10. The Op. 129 Rondo remained unpublished during Beethoven's lifetime. [1]
