Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 8 remains one of his most popular compositions and is commonly known as the Pathetique Sonata. Alan Miller's arrangement for percussion ensemble draws its content from Beethoven's first movement.

Arranged for eight players on mostly pitched percussion instruments, Pathetique is an active and colorfully orchestrated piece that highlights the dexterity of the performers, transforming the original piano work to percussion ensemble with particular musical ingenuity.

This piece comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.
