The"Sonata in F minor"op. 57 (1804/05), a key work in the classical sonata repertoire, is part of Barenreiter's ongoing publication of selected Beethoven piano sonatas in Urtext editions. The nickname"Appassionata"was ascribed to the sonata only in 1838, long after Beethoven's death.
This Urtext edition is edited by the Beethoven expert Jonathan Del Mar. His editorial approach and principles are explained in a precisely formulated critical commentary. With a clear well-presented layout and optimum page turns, this edition invites you to discover this fascinating sonata anew.
An introduction by Misha Donat examines the genesis and significance of the work, supplemented by informative notes on questions related to historical performance practice by Jonathan Del Mar and Misha Donat.

* Scholarly-critical Urtext edition incorporating the most recent research
