Piano Sonata in G major Op.79 "Sonate facile"
The small sonata Op.79 which is called a “sonata” in the autograph but a “sonatina" in the German first edition, belongs to the standard repertoire for advanced beginners.
Beethoven’s autograph, written in 1809, had a convoluted history: Muzio Clementi extracted the individual movements from the manuscript and sold them separately. Only a stroke of luck allowed them to be reunited many years later.
