Ludwig van Beethoven’s first three piano sonatas first appeared in Vienna in March 1796 and were dedicated to Joseph Haydn. Legend has it that Haydn wished to see the words that Beethoven was his pupil on the title sheet, but the latter rebelled. Beethoven owed a great deal to his senior colleague and Haydn’s influence was felt throughout his work until almost his very last days. But the First Sonata (Op. 2, No 1) is demonstratively distant from the style of the maestro’s sonatas.
He has recorded the set three times, with the latest coming out soon on DVD. These pieces have been the backbone of his 50-year career – yet he is still moved to tears every time he plays them. OK, I cry very easily, he clarifies with a wave of the hand, but yes, in every sonata there is some part where the tears come.
