Sonates pour le Clavecin ou Piano Forte

Das wohltemperirte Clavier ist das alte Testament, die Beethoven’schen Sonaten das neue, an beide müssen wir glauben.“ Hans von Bülow

Coursera just launched a new set of lectures, part 3, for the course “Exploring Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas” by Jonathan Biss. These courses get an average 5-star rating which, in my view, is completely justified.

Part 3 explores

  • Sonata Op. 10, No. 1
  • Sonata Op. 22
  • Sonata Op. 31, No. 2 (“Tempest”)
  • Sonata Opp. 78, 79, 81a

Part 2 explores

  • Sonata Op. 2, No. 3
  • Sonata Op. 13 (“Pathetique”)
  • Sonata Op. 53 (“Waldstein”)
  • Sonata Op. 90

Part 1 explores

  • Introduction and biography
  • Sonata Op. 109
  • Sonata Op. 2, No. 1 and Op. 10, No. 2
  • Sonata Op. 57 ( “Appassionata”)
  • Sonata Op. 101
