The ' Appassionata ' Sonata, First and Second
THE title was given to this Sonata by Cranz. Beethoven 's publisher, without the Composer's authority.
There is in the opening Movement. a matured concentrated power and a sombre tenderness that we find in equal measure in scarcely any of his earlier keyboard works.
The FIRST MOVEMENT has a minor key First
Main Tune of nervous energy, dark and mysterious.
The mood is changed for a moment by the opening strain of the Second Main Tune, a happy, singing, major-key melody.
In the SECOND MOVEMENT we have a short
- set of Variations on a beautiful subdued melody.
Note how its emotional effect is enhanced by its being played in the lower half of the keyboard.
