  2. "The Studio Recordings " is the first of Vladimir Horowitz's incredible nine CD volumes of the Complete Masterworks Recordings, which are available individually or as a boxed set. Volume One features solo piano works by an amazing array of composers -- Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Liszt, Rachmaninov, Scarlatti, Scriabin, Schubert and 5/5(4).
  3. The String Quartet No. 14 in C ♯ minor, Op. , by Ludwig van Beethoven was completed in (The number traditionally assigned to it is based on the order of its publication; it is actually his fifteenth quartet by order of composition.) About 40 minutes in length, it consists of seven movements to be played without a break, as follows.
  4. During the Classical era, C minor was used infrequently and always for works of a particularly turbulent cast. [citation needed] Mozart, for instance, wrote only very few works in this key, but they are among his most dramatic ones (the twenty-fourth piano concerto, the fourteenth piano sonata, the Masonic Funeral Music, the Adagio and Fugue in C minor and the Great Mass in C minor, for instance).
  5. Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 8 in C minor, Op. 13 'Pathetique' Chopin: Étude Op. 10 No. 12 in C minor ‘Revolutionary' Chopin: Étude Op. 25 No. 7 in C sharp minor; Chopin: Piano Sonata No. 2 in B flat minor, Op. 35 'Marche funèbre' Chopin: Scherzo No. 1 in B minor, Op. 20; Debussy: Bruyères (from Préludes - Book 2).
  6. Beethoven billed each of the two works published under Op. 27 as a "sonata quasi una fantasia," presumably a hint that he was trying to meld the formal conventions of the eighteenth century sonata with a newer, freer, more Romantic style. Many musicians consider the first of this pair, the Piano Sonata No. 13 in E flat major (), to be the superior work, but the Piano Sonata No. 14 in.
  7. Clementi's Op.2 is the first real piano sonata. The much younger Franz Schubert also wrote many. The 32 sonatas of Beethoven, including the well-known Pathétique Sonata and the Moonlight Sonata, are often considered the pinnacle of piano sonata composition.
