Thank you, Tea Zhi Yuan, for your contribution of this article.

"One instrumental development in Beethoven’s reign was the development of piano music and hence, the development of his piano sonatas. It is in my opinion that it is in these 32 that we see a beautiful series, each sonata carrying a crucial role in the evolution of music. And if we ever compare the 1st and 32nd sonata he wrote, it would seem that 2 different people have composed them."

I like this article. A great analysis. Have adored Beethoven's sonatas for some time. Look forward to more of these articles.

Hi Jia Hui. Thank you very much. I hoped you liked it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

My personal favourite is Sonata No. 17 in D minor, the 3rd movement. Simple motif but engaging.

Hi Soo Hin. Thank you for your reply. Yes, it is a simple and engaging motif and i believe that would be the tempest sonata. Ah, but unfortunately, I do have some prejudice or I guess "some beef"... See More

Hi Soo Hin. Thank you for your reply. Yes, it is a simple and engaging motif and i believe that would be the tempest sonata. Ah, but unfortunately, I do have some prejudice or I guess "some beef" with that particular sonata (which explains why I didnt include it in any of the articles). But we have own preferences and the right to preference (some say that my personal favourite sonata, the Appasionata and particularly the 3rd movement sounds like a mouthful of notes that is not constructive, and I thought this should be applied to Liszt).
