OPUS 27 NO. 2 "MOONLIGHT SONATA"
Composed by Ludwig van Beethoven
Edited by Keith Snell
This sonata, Beethoven’s 14th, is the most familiar of all 32 sonatas that he composed. The three movements make a strong contrast in character, from the contemplative Adagio Sostenuto first movement, to the light and dance-like Allegretto, to the virtuoso and dramatic final Presto. Spacious and clean notation and practical fingering make this edition ideal for amateur pianists and for teachers to use with students.
