    Beautiful. The first movement opens with a familiar theme, and then is developed into an amazing melody. The second movement is a calming gem, and the last is a bounding Rondo. This is a great piece for any student interested in learning some moderately technical skills and get familiar with...

    Beethoven's genious. A must learn for any serious student!

    Difficulty Level:
  • December 19, 2005 One of the Best Sonatas Ever Written...

    and also one of the most famous second only to the "Moonlight Sonata." All three of the movements are familiar and recognixable to even non-pianists. The first movement is intense and showy, the second is beautiful and tranquil, while the third is upbeat and fun. This edition is outstanding...

    both price and quality-wise and recommended over any other. As far as difficulty, all three movements require work. The second movement is the easiest of the three and is at about a late-intermediate level *watch the voicing!* The other two are at about an early-advanced level. They take practice to get up to tempo!
