GREAT PERFORMANCES: Wilhelm Kempff PlaysBeethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 16 Op. 31 in G major

Piano: Wilhelm Kempff

Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 16 in G major, Op. 31 No. 1, was composed between 1801 and 1802.
The sonata consists of three movements. A typical performance lasts about 20 minutes.

  1. Allegro vivace
  2. Adagio grazioso
  3. Rondo, allegretto – presto

Although it was numbered as the first piece in the trio of piano sonatas which were published as Opus 31 in 1803, Beethoven actually finished it after the Op. 31 No. 2, the Tempest Sonata. [From Wikipedia]
