Beethoven wrote 32 sonatas for piano. Volume 2, edited by Stewart Gordon, includes Sonatas 9--15 (Op. 14, Nos. 1--2; Op. 22; Op. 26; Op. 27, Nos. 1--2; and Op. 28), written between 1798 and 1801 and published shortly after they were written. Of the sonatas in this volume, autographs exist for Op. 26; Op. 27, No. 2 (the first and final pages are missing); and Op. 28. This edition is based on the existing autographs and the first editions, published by various Viennese engravers. Dr. Gordon discusses a variety of topics including Beethoven's life; the pianos of his time and their limitations; Beethoven's use of articulation, ornamentation, tempo; and the age-old challenge of attempting to determine the definitive interpretation of Beethoven's music. Valuable performance recommendations, helpful fingering suggestions and ornament realizations are offered in this comprehensive critical body of Beethoven's sonatas. Where performance options are open to interpretation, other editors' conclusions are noted, enabling students and teachers to make informed performance decisions.

    The Alfred Masterwork Editions never disappoint. This (relatively) new edition of Beethoven Sonatas combines the best of all previous editions: it uses the Urtext but complements it with exhaustive comments, comparing previous editions, providing alternatives, etc. Henle also has comments but they are in the appendix; Alfred puts most of...

    the comments in footnotes, so they are right there on the page you are working on; no need to lose your place in the score in order to find the appropriate page in the appendix. As usual, Alfred also very clearly distinguishes the Urtext (in black) from any editorial additions (in grey) or elaborations. This is clearly an edition to work from (rather than just read along while listening): many of the comments/footnotes refer to the execution of ornaments, re-distribution of the hands to facilitate technical challenges, phrasing details, tempo variations, etc. I look forward to owning all volumes of this edition of the Beethoven Sonatas.
