This wonderful piece, Beethoven Sonata no.2, it is unknown when exactly this piece was composed. But as the result of Nottebohm’s study on Beethoven’s sketch note, it is assumed to be composed in 1795. The piece is still clearly inuenced by Mozart, but perhaps surprisingly, it is Beethoven’s mood that is lighter. It lacks dynamics and articulations comparing to the other Beethoven sonatas. The first movement has a dierent character, more aable, witty and it ows with humour, fascinating interplay of violin and piano. The slow movement is based on a lyrical, melancholic theme. Each of its two parts is gently announced by the piano, then repeated by the violin. The Finale marks something of a return to the good-natured opening, Allegro piacevole denoting pleasure rather than re. It has a high-spirited rondo with frequent humourous touches. Among the three Sonatas in Op.12, it is possible to assume that Sonata no.2 has been composed first and this piece was dedicated to Antonio Salieri just as Sonata no.1.
