About 'Moonlight Sonata (1st mvt)'



Artist: Beethoven, Ludwig Van (biography)
Born:15/16 December 1770 , Bonn
Died:26 March 1827 , Vienna
The Artist:One of the greatest and most radical composers of all time. A tormented genius, who went deaf in later life and never heard his final works. His nine symphones are probably his greatest achievement, each one an unrivalved masterpiece, but he also wrote 5 piano concertos, piano sonatas, string quartets and one opera, Fidelio.
Composition Date:1801
Composition Info:The first movement of Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 14 “Quasi una fantasia” in C sharp minor Op. 27 No. 2, “Moonlight” is one of the most popular piano pieces ever written. The sonata got its name when poet Ludwig Rellstab described the music as being “like moonlight shining on a lake” in 1832.

I spent the last month looking for a nice interpretation of this song, and i found it very hard. There are lots of different interpretations, and I thought that something was missing in each one of them.

This is one of my favorite classical songs! It is my favorite from Beethoven and I just love it. Actually, the first time I listened to it was when I was watching a goosebumps episode on CartoonNetwork and the song was so nice.

This is one of the first songs I';ve ever ever heard by Beethoven, and my favorite. I really do wish it was slower, though.

The example you have posted as the theme for this peice is not the theme. What you do have there is the opening measures of the "Moonlight Sonata" and it is written in the key you have posted, c# minor. In your Info list you state
N.B. The theme shown is not necessarily in the key we use for our version of this piece.


Necessarily, why not keep it in the key the composer wrote it in?
