Professor: Gulsin Onay. She then goes from the peaceful Andante con Moto of the 2nd movement to the Allegro of the 3rd movement, with its 'Perpetuum mobile', which she very precisely examines.

Our relationship to Beethoven is a deep and paradoxical one. For many musicians, he represents a kind of holy grail: His music has an intensity, rigor, and profundity which keep us in its thrall, and it is perhaps unequalled in the interpretive, technical, and even spiritual challenges it poses to performers.
Two hundred years after his death, he is everywhere in the culture, yet still represents its summit. This course takes an inside-out look at the 32 piano sonatas from the point of view of a performer. These might include: the relationship between Beethoven the pianist and Beethoven the composer; the critical role improvisation plays in his highly structured music; his mixing of extremely refined music with rougher elements; and the often surprising ways in which the events of his life influenced his compositional process and the character of the music he was writing.
The course will feature some analysis and historical background, but its perspective is that of a player, not a musicologist. This season's Curtis courses are sponsored by Linda Richardson in loving memory of her husband, Dr. Paul Richardson. Excellent coverage of the essentials.

Ludwig van Beethoven 's Piano Sonata No. The first edition was published in February in Vienna. Unlike the early Sonata No. One of his greatest and most technically challenging piano sonatas , the Appassionata was considered by Beethoven to be his most tempestuous piano sonata until the twenty-ninth piano sonata known as the Hammerklavier [ citation needed ]. A sonata-allegro form in 12 8 time, the first movement progresses quickly through startling changes in tone and dynamics, and is characterised by an economic use of themes.
