Description

Beethoven's Sonata in F Major, Op. 10, No. 2, like its sister, Op. 10, No. 1 in C Minor, is one of the most frequently played works in piano lessons and piano studies. in contrast to the darker and more abrupt tones of, Op. 10, No. 1, the F Major Sonata is characterized by cheerfulness, even sparkling humour, which is only interrupted by more contemplative tones in the F Minor middle movement.

With the autograph lost, this edition is based on the first edition published in 1798. Moreover, it draws on contemporary early prints to back up the musical text. Readings that only appeared in the later 19th century have been eliminated from the musical text, but their origin has been explained in the Critical Notes. The edition thus offers an excellent basis for lessons and concerts.
