Description

The Piano Sonata Op. 101 is generally considered by scholars to be one of the first of Beethoven's late works. The composer's increasing deafness was already manifesting itself in such a marked way that he no longer dared to appear publicly as a pianist. In this sonata he experimented with unusual harmonies, broke with form, gave detailed German headings for the movements, and for the first time also used a note so unheard of that it was not even on most of the contemporary pianos: the low counter E.
