Abstract

Beethoven's piano sonatas are possibly the greatest achievement in piano literature, perhaps in all musical literature. It has been said that if the forty-eight preludes and fuges of Bach's "Well-tempered Clavier" were to be considered the "Old Testament" of music, then Beethoven's thirty-two sonatas would have to be the "New Testament."
