Thoughts on Beethoven’s ‘Pathetique Sonata’
The more I listen and become better acquainted with Beethoven’s epic Sonata No. 8 ‘Pathetique Sonata’, the more I can feel the emotional impact that this music conveys.
I’m currently working on the 2nd movement again, to really get it down. Of course, I don’t have the chops to handle the 1st and 3rd movements, but one day hope to get it down.
I like Freddy Kempf’s version of Beethoven’s ‘Pathetique’. He really brings out that emotion that Beethoven’s music exudes.
Here’s a video of the 2nd movement. A beautiful rendition. I’m not going to try to learn the entire 2nd movement at this point in time, but I can handle the first part of it.
