Piano Sonata in A Op.101

Beethoven never ceased to experiment in his piano sonatas. The Sonata Op.26 (a favourite of Chopin's) starts with a lilting slow movement, while the slightly earlier Sonata Op.22 is altogether grander. The two-movement Sonata Op.90 contrasts the tense, terse opening with a gentler song-like second movement. The lyricism of the Sonata Op.101, one of his most intimate piano works, evoked – according to Beethoven – 'a series of impressions and reveries' – where music of luminous beauty is contrasted with an exciting March and the rapidly changing moods of the finale.
