Piano Sonata Op. 27, No. 2 in C-sharp minor, "Moonlight" sonata


  • Composer: Beethoven Ludwig Van

  • Please Choose:


Full set Ludwig Van Beethoven Piano Sonata "Quasi una fantasia" Op. 27, No. 2 in C-sharp minor music sheets. This sonata is popularly known as the "Moonlight" Sonata. The work was composed in 1801 and rumored to be dedicated to his pupil, 17-year-old Countess Giulietta Guicciardi, with whom Beethoven was, or had been, in love.
Beethoven included the phrase "Quasi una fantasia" (Italian: Like a fantasy) in the title partly because the sonata does not follow the traditional sonata pattern where the first movement is in regular sonata form, and where the three or four movements are arranged in a fast-slow-[fast]-fast sequence.

The sonata is in three movements:
I. Adagio sostenuto
II. Allegretto 
III. Presto agitato
