Beethoven's op. 101
on: June 15, 2004, 01:08:31 AM
I have been listening to this lovely piece a fair amount recently-and with each listening, it becomes more beautiful and fun.  Has anybody here played this piece?  It certainly looks tricky.  Would this piece be considered overplayed?

You're right this is an absolutely beautiful sonata, I think if anything this piece is very much under played. I haven't played it but am considering it for the summer. It is a tricky piece, the first few movements seem ok but the last has a very hard fugue, in which Beethoven is very uncompromising!

I am still planning on learning op. 111 this summer, but when I finish that, I might pick up the 101.  Actually, 101 is a bit shorter, so it could be better for conservatory auditions or competitions.
