Piano Sonata No.1 - F major

Copyright © 2000 Markus Behlau


For the first time after intense studies on musical theory and on the works of Beethoven I dared to apply all that I had learned in this piano sonata.
The first movement in sonata form begins with a simple cord-motif, which is then contrasted by a more lively second theme, that reminds of Mozart. The development starts with a neet little fugato on the cord-motif. The second movement is a theme with variations. After its presentation the tune is reproduced in a solemn, energetical, sad and joyful manner, before it then returns to it's original form. The sonata closes with a fugue.
