Beethoven gave this sonata the unusual title “Sonata quasi una Fantasia;” which it shares; along with its opus number; with the considerably more famous “Moonlight” Sonata. Both sonatas – along with the preceding sonata with the funeral march op. 26; and the thre sonatas op. 31 soon to follow – usher in Beethoven's conquest of new musical territory in this genre. With a complex structure that oscillates between fantasia and sonata; op. 27 no. 1 has long presented pianists with great interpretive challenges that; once they have been overcome; bring to light a true jewel. G. Henle Publishers now also offers this sonata in a new edition; with proven fingering and interpretive suggestions by Murray Perahia and edited by the team of Beethoven experts Gertsch and Perahia.
