Beethoven, Op. 2/3

Beethoven, Op. 2/3

Pianist András Schiff, in his analysis, reminds that music is ‘about expectation and surprise;’ and, points out, in this sonata, the continuity of Beethoven’s thought (in this case, to Op. 73), the mastery of variation (throughout his creative works), and the fine use of unchanging harmony in the resolution of phrases, such as in the four opening bars of the Adagio.
