The Pathetique
Sonata is Superb

Beethoven Sonata Op. 13
(Second Movement)

The Pathetique Sonata is what you heard in the mp3 recording! This C minor sonata’s second movement is in the key of Ab and marked as adagio cantabile.

Beethoven was not afraid to move from key to key in this famous movement, and he boldly ventured into the tonic minor and even glided into E major before finally returning to his main Ab major theme towards the movement’s conclusion.

Decoys

Mozart’s 1774 piano sonata (KV 281) has a second movement tempo indication of andante amoroso. Like the Beethoven work, this movement is also in the key of Ab major.

The Haydn work (Hob: XVI: 34) was written around 1781-1782. Its first movement is in D major and its middle movement is in the tonic minor key (D minor).
