Professor Cooper’s edition does throw one blindingly obvious change at the music world. There are no longer 32 Beethoven piano sonatas, as books and performers will tell you, but 35. Not that Professor Cooper has discovered three more. Rather, he has reconsidered and admitted to the canon three early sonatas written when Beethoven was 12, usually set aside as juvenilia.

“I can find no reason why they shouldn’t be counted,” he said, “and indeed they were in the first complete edition... See More

Not that Professor Cooper has discovered three more. Rather, he has reconsidered and admitted to the canon three early sonatas written when Beethoven was 12, usually set aside as juvenilia.

“I can find no reason why they shouldn’t be counted,” he said, “and indeed they were in the first complete edition of the sonatas, published just after Beethoven’s death by his friend Haslinger, who presumably knew what Beethoven wanted. They are fully fledged, three-movement works, and if they lack something in quality, you could say the same of some of the Opus 49 Sonatas, and you surely wouldn’t exclude those from the canon.

16th December is commonly accepted as Beethoven's birthday since his family and even his teacher Johann Albrechtsberger celebrated it on that day.
