Beethoven once reported that he had written down his three last piano sonata (op. 109; 110; 111) in 1820 to 1822 in one go; and they certainly form a closely related group. Beethoven dedicated his very last sonata; no. 32 in C minor op. 111; to his patron Archduke Rudolf of Austria; who shortly beforehand had also been the dedicatee of Beethoven's famous “Missa Solemnis.” Experts consider Beethoven's last sonata to be the great; concluding climax of his piano sonata output. Its unusual two-movement form unites grandeur with simplicity. This carefully edited Henle Urtext edition offers a solid basis from which to delve into one of Beethoven's most difficult piano sonatas.
