Beethoven Piano Sonatas


This sonata used to have a long "Andante" section. Beethoven didn't like it, so it became a separate work ("Andante favori") WoO 57. The "Introduzione (Adagio molto {?})" is now the middle movement that introduces the third movement. Deathgleaner 18:41, 26 December 2008 (EST)
