About 'Sonatina in G (2nd mvt)'
|| (biography) (sheet music)|
|Born:||15/16 December 1770
|Died:||26 March 1827
|The Artist:||One of the greatest and most radical composers of all time. A tormented genius, who went deaf in later life and never heard his final works. His nine symphones are probably his greatest achievement, each one an unrivalved masterpiece, but he also wrote 5 piano concertos, piano sonatas, string quartets and one opera, Fidelio.|
|Composition Info:||Sonatina in G major (Anh.5, no.2) is a piece of music attributed to Ludwig van Beethoven.|
Since the work was published in Hamburg, Germany after Beethoven's death, its authenticity is doubted, as it uses styles never seen by Beethoven before. It is split into 2 sections. The first is titled Moderato and is in 4/4 time; the second section is titled Romance and is in 6/8 time. The two sections are actually called 'The Two Sonatinas' and referred to as the First & Second Movements.
