Beethoven Sonata Op. 54

Michael Lewin

Beethoven Sonata Op. 54

The Beethoven Sonata No. 22 in F Major, Op. 54 is the least played of all the 32 Beethoven Piano Sonatas! This should not be the case! It is quirky, funny, challenging, virtuosic, and absolutely unique, not to mention being a very useful Sonata to have in your repertoire. Let's take a look at this unusual two-movement 11 minute work, and see what makes it different from all other Beethoven Sonatas and how to communicate its humor to an audience. Beethoven himself loved this Sonata, so should you!
