Well, I am not requesting it, as it is in the gold member's section: but let's discuss it!

I have been told that he changed the kind of paper he wrote upon as time went on.  Also, I am aware of the grandiose ending he chose, and near the end of the piece where another motive could have very easily been kept, but was taken out.  K. B. Hamilton said he was tempted to add it back in himself...

Thanks for the edit, admins, and for the link to the sonata.
For us musicians, the music of Beethoven is the pillar of fire and cloud of mist which guided the Israelites through the desert.  (Roughly quoted, Franz Liszt.)
