With an artistic love of freedom, Felix Reuter has taken up central motifs of the Beethoven Sonata Pathétique, "distilled" the work sensitively and allowed his own stylistic colours to flow in a very organic way. They make the artistic essence shine anew as a personal reading - more peaceful and less stirring than the original work, yet with great expressiveness. The first movement - in the original an 8-minute epic - is strongly reduced in Felix Reuter's work. He maintains the unmistakable, thunderous opening of the "Grave" and the harmony, but dissolves it according to his own stylistic sense. The composer has also inserted his own, booming middle section in a modern style of playing, in rhythmic reference to the beginning of the work. In this edition the piano sheet music of the first movement are included. Movements 2 and 3 are also available as sheet music editions.
