This was the earliest of Beethoven's piano sonatas to reach warhorse status. The second movement begins with a soothing, languid, melancholy melody of an autumnal beauty. Dominating the entire movement, this initial theme eclipses both the subdued second theme and the moment of dramatic tension in the middle section of the movement. Dedicated to Prince Lichnowsky, this composition was first published in Vienna in 1799.

The second movement is arranged here for a small chamber orchestra.
