Ludwig van Beethoven: Andante In F WoO 57: Piano

Instrumental Work | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Subtitle Andante F major WoO 57
Instrumentation Piano
Composer Ludwig van Beethoven
Publisher G. Henle Verlag
With its appealing opening melody, this piece is widely known and beloved under the title Andante favori. It was written as the slow movement of the famous “Waldstein” Piano Sonata in C major, op. 53. Beethoven’s student and later biographer Ferdinand Ries reported that a friend had voiced his view about “the sonata being too long,” whereupon the friend was given a terrible talking-to (by Beethoven). But “…Having had time for more placid reflection, my teacher [i.e. Beethoven] soon became convinced of the correctness of the comment.” Luckily for today’s pianists, Beethoven did not discard the piece completely, but had it published as a single movement in 1805. The title Andante favori made its first appearance in a print that was released one year later.
