In the first decade of his career as a published composer, Ludwig van Beethoven completed an enormous amount of music. Some of the most beloved sonatas for piano belong to this prolific period, marked not only by the desire to be acknowledged as an emerging composer of his time, but also by wonderfully creative inspiration and innovation. All of these sonatas are crucial in the way Beethoven understood both musical forms and the possibilities of the piano as the new household instrument.

The Sonata in C Minor, Op. 13 was published in 1799 by Eder as “Grande sonate pathetique” – a title not by Beethoven but by the publisher, and which the composer nonetheless liked (Eder found the piece’s dramatic sonorities greatly affecting). The frontispiece indicates that the work is composed for harpsichord or piano – to increase sales, since many people in Vienna still owned harpsichords (all the sonatas for piano that Beethoven published until then were sold as works written for both instruments). Here Beethoven experiments with novel ideas about form in the outer movements – innovations which will influence contemporaneous and future composers.

The Two Sonatas, Op. 27, composed in the year 1800, were subtitled by Beethoven “Sonata quasi una fantasia” for the freedom with which their structures were conceived. Both sonatas present unusual features – the first, in E-flat major, almost cyclical, structurally evokes a fantasy wherein different movements are played without interruption. The structure is made more complex by the return of slow movement at the end of the work, before the closing coda. The second sonata, in C-sharp minor, presents two movements in sonata form – the first an Adagio, and the second featuring unusual harmonic relations between the two main thematic blocks. Franz Liszt aptly proclaimed that the second movement, a simple minuet in the key of D-flat major in ABA form, is “a flower between two abysses.” The second sonata from Op. 27 was nicknamed Mondschein (“Moonlight”) by the German critic Ludwig Rellstab in 1835, as its first movement evoked in his mind the silvery moon reflecting on the placid Lake Lucerne.
