“My compositions are very profitable for me and I can say that I have more orders than are almost possible for me to fulfil.” Beethoven wrote the latter to a friend in 1801. He had only just completed his “Moonlight Sonata” op. 27 No. 2; when he began writing down the first sketches for his Sonata op. 28. Elements of pastoral music; such as the dance-like triple metre as well as pedal notes and fifths in the bass which seem to imitate bagpipes; are reminiscent of the later 6th Symphony. The rustic character gave rise to the work's epithet “Sonate Pastorale.” Following a thorough revision; we are now presenting this sonata in an affordable single edition for the first time. The fingerings were provided by none other than Murray Perahia.
