The virtuoso pianist and pedagogue Carl Czerny remembered for his incendiary technical prowess chose the path towards becoming a fully fledged composer early on, turning his back on the glamour of the celebrity lifestyle enjoyed by other virtuosi of the day. Among these fruits, the Sonata, Opus 57 is generally considered to be Czerny's homage to Beethoven's Appassionata sonata.
