Coursera just launched a new set of lectures, part 3, for the course “Exploring Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas” by Jonathan Biss.
Below some notes and references for Sonata Op.22.
This work was composed in 1800 and published two years later by Hoffmeister, Leipzig with title Grande Sonate pour le Piano Forte, dedicated to Monsieur le Conte de Browne (husband of Countess Anna Margarete of Op. 10 no 1.).
Beethoven regarded it as the best of his early sonatas.
Diese Sonate hat sich gewaschen, geliebtester Herr Bruder!
Before there were MOOCs, András Schiff did a series of lecture-recitals of the Beethoven Piano Sonatas at Wigmore Hall (2004-6).
