Beethoven: Piano Sonata #15, "Pastorale", I (Allegro)

Weekend Music

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I have finally been exploring the set of Beethoven piano sonatas I received for Christmas several years ago and which have mostly sat unheard since then, for lack of convenient opportunity. I've finally resorted to listening to them in the car, which is unsatisfactory--the very quiet parts disappear--but I guess better than nothing. This is not the recording I have (Schiff, on ECM), just what I was able to find on YouTube. I love the first two movements of this sonata, but am less taken with the last two. So far, anyway.


Update: Ok,well, the truth is that I really like the second movement best, though it's more modest, so let's have it, too.
