Piano Sonata No.01 1st movement (Op 2 No 1) Beethoven Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Beethoven's Piano Sonata in F minor, Op.2, No.1 was composed in 1795 and first published by Artaria of Vienna in 1796. It is dedicated to Joseph Haydn, Beethoven's former teacher, along with Op.2, Nos.2 and 3. All of the Op.2 have four movements, a rarity in 18th century sonatas. The F minor sonata has a light texture which is similar to Haydn, however, its dramatic character and bold use of dynamics are clearly the product of Beethoven's fiery temperament. The first movement Allegro displays these sharp dynamic contrasts, which must have been shocking to listeners at the time. Beethoven's first eleven piano sonatas, until Op.22, are often classified as coming from his First Period of composition in which Beethoven roughly conforms to the classical traditions of Haydn and Mozart
