Ludwig van Beethoven ‘s Piano Sonata No. It has remained one of his most celebrated compositions. The second movement, “Adagio cantabile”, especially, makes use of a theme remarkably similar to that of the spacious second movement of Mozart’s sonata. In its entirety, encompassing all three movementsthe work takes approximately 19 minutes to perform. The first movement is in sonata form.

It begins with a slow introductory theme, marked Grave. Patyetique expositionmarked Allegro di molto con briois in 2 2 time alla breve in the home key of C minor and features three themes. Theme 1 features an aggressive rocket theme covering two octavesaccompanied with constant tremolo octaves in the left hand.

This theme is more lyrical and makes use of grace notes and crossed hands. A codettawith ideas from the opening allegro, closes the section. This movement is one of the few compositions that contain hundred twenty-eighth notes. The development section begins in the key of G minor. In this section, Beethoven extends Haydn’s compositional practice by returning to the introductory section.

After this reappearance of the Gravethe composer generates suspense with an extended dominant preparation. The recapitulation brings back the themes of the exposition in different keys: The coda is very dramatic and includes a brief reminder of the Grave before ending with a swift cadence. This movement exemplifies the expressive Adagio style of many slow movements in the classical period.


With the final return of the main theme, the accompaniment becomes richer and takes on the triplet rhythm of the second episode. There cantbile a brief coda.

The complete movement was performed by Schroeder actually played by Ingolf Dahlset to animation, in the animated film A Boy Named Charlie Brown. The sonata closes with a cut time movement in C minor.

The main theme closely resembles the second theme of patetique Allegro of the first movement: There is also a modified representation of the melody from the second movement, so it connects all three movements together. The movement’s sonata rondo form includes a coda. The common use of sforzando creates a forceful effect.

Not only was it instantly popular, it also exposed the world to the characteristics that Beethoven would continue to develop in cantabiel coming years. When the pianist and composer Ignaz Moscheles discovered the work inhe was ten years old; unable to afford to buy the music, he copied it out from a library copy.
