At the dawn of the 19th century Beethoven struck out on new paths with his two opus 27 sonatas, each of which he called a ‘sonata quasi una fantasia’. Both of them, in particular Sonata no. 2 which was later nicknamed the ‘Moonlight Sonata’, were destined for immortality.

Spacious engraving and practical page turns ensure optimum pleasure for every pianist. A meticulously compiled Critical Commentary provides information on alternative readings and editorial decisions.
