About the Book All ten sonatas, including the famed Kreutzer and Spring sonatas, longtime favorites of violinists, pianists, and their audiences. Definitive Breitkopf and Härtel edition. Book Synopsis Beethoven's ten violin sonatas, time-honored favorites of violinists, pianists, and their audiences, reflect the great composer's determination to make the interrelationship between the violin and the piano a more intimate one, and to create a more even and intricate balance between the two instruments than had previously existed in the genre. Ranging in mood and style from the brilliant and virtuosic Kreutzer Sonata to the pastoral, lyrical Spring Sonata, they include: Sonata No. 1 in D Major, Op. 12, No. 1; Sonata No. 2 in A Major, Op. 12, No. 2; Sonata No. 3 in E-flat Major, Op. 12, No. 3; Sonata No. 4 in A Minor, Op. 23; Sonata No. 5 in F Major (Spring), Op. 24; Sonata No. 6 in A Major, Op. 30, No. 1; Sonata No. 7 in C Minor, Op. 30, No. 2; Sonata No. 8 in G Major, Op. 30, No. 3; Sonata No. 9 in A Minor (Kreutzer), Op. 47; Sonata No. 10 in G Major, Op. 96. All ten of these beautiful and challenging masterworks are reprinted here from the authoritative edition prepared by Breitkopf and Härtel. Beautifully printed and sturdily bound, this handsome volume offers violinists, pianists, and music lovers the opportunity to study and enjoy the scores in one convenient, inexpensive source. About the Author The triumphant genius of Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) casts a long shadow over classical music -- no other composer of the past two centuries has exercised an influence more profound than his. A product of the classicist generation, he was the first of the Romantics, and his exhilarating works remain undiminished in their powers of enchantment.
