Moonlight Trapped in the Sonata Form?

How can we explain the immense popularity of the sonata for over two hundred years? What makes it so satisfying, so complete? Here we listen to a recent performance of the Moonlight Sonata by pianist Yundi Li from a popular TV-show in Japan. His interpetation is quite traditional with a slow and beautiful rendition of the first movement. But there is another completely different way to interpret it. Which do you prefer? Read more >>

Recorded from digital piano Roland HP-201.
I'm a hobbyist and play just a couple of pieces a year. When I do have my mind set on a piece I try to make the best of it. Hope this one turned out ok. Comments welcome!

I like to think we're all hobbyists to a certain degree. I love that you play what inspires you. I've read through some of the op. 11's recently, and they are filled with inexhaustible riches. I really enjoyed your performance of no. 1. In it your love for the piece overflows from every nuance, and I think musically is is superb. Congratulations!

Have you noticed how similar it is in style to Chopin's first prelude?
I really liked that - you can tell you do, too.

Thanks. Smiley
I'd love to play some of the other preludes too. Especially No. 14, seems very diffictult though.
