Sonata No. 8 in C Minor, Op. 13 ("Pathétique"). Composed by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827). Edited by Stewart Gordon. For Piano. Masterworks; Piano Solo; Solo. Alfred Masterwork Edition. Form: Sonata. Classical; Masterwork; Romantic. Early Advanced. Book. 28 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.27902).

ISBN 0739046799. Classical; Masterwork; Romantic.

The Sonata No. 8 in C Minor, Op. 13, is an important milestone, not only in Beethoven's piano sonatas but also in the development of the keyboard sonata. It is dramatic and emotional to the extent seldom approached by composers of the day as suggested by the term "pathétique" attached to the title of the first edition. Dr. Stewart Gordon's editions of Beethoven's most popular piano sonatas provide the key to a stylistic performance. Thorough research of the earliest available sources has enabled Dr. Gordon to produce the most accurate reflection of the composer's intent. Each sonata contains helpful fingering suggestions and performance recommendations. Other editors' conclusions are noted where performance options are open to interpretation.

    This version provides plenty of great comments, and it is a master piece of course that should be a part of any piano player's repertoire.

  • October 10, 2007 Excellant new edition

    Alfred's new individual Beethoven Sonatas edited by Stewart Gordon are a welcome addition. I particularly liked finding the interesting editorial comments and performance suggestions as footnotes instead of in a preface; they clarified and instructed and were never pompous. While I questioned some of the fingering (as usual), editorial...

    marks were kept to a minimum, leaving a clear, easy to read format albeit somewhat overspaced. And the price is right!
