The first piano sonata that Beethoven published with an opus number is a piece that stamps the composer as an utterly unique creator who; despite all historical references; clearly distinguishes himself from his predecessors Haydn and Mozart. The slow movement is borrowed directly from the second movement of the Piano Quartet WoO 36 no. 3; which; in turn; is a reminiscence of Mozart's style. Above all; though; it is the two outer movements; surging dramatically forward; that show Beethoven's new path.
