Piano Sonata No.10 in G Major Op.14 No.2

Beethoven (1770-1827)

Piano Sonata No.10 in G Major Op.14 No.2

The undulating theme with which the first movement of the major sonata begins provides most of its material, but the second subject, with its gentle, rocking thirds, is by no means insignificant. The development is particularly remarkable for the impassioned passage during which the left hand takes up the main theme and elaborates it beneath rippling triplets in the treble, leading to a false recapitulation in E flat major. The second movement (in C major) is a march, with three straightforward variations and the last, although described as a Scherzo, is in fact a fully developed rondo, with a rhythmically ingenious refrain, a lyrical episode in C major, and a substantial coda.
