Well i believe that the slow movement of the MoonLight Sonata is both easy and also difficult. Its easy as in the notes and everything, you might be able to even play it at first sight at the correct tempo and also fluently. But i believe its a very hard piece to sustain and to even make it sound "right" (well i cannot find the right word to describe what i mean over here). But it does gives many pianists an overall impression of it being a very simple piece, but how many of them can really play it well?
