Piano Sonata No. 17 in D Minor "Tempest" Op. 31 No. 2 by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827). Edited by Adolf Ruthardt. For piano. This edition: Spiral Bound. Published by Polonius Sheet Music (PU.116).
Known as "The Tempest," Beethoven's seventeenth piano sonata was written in 1801 and 1802. It was not until after Beethoven's death, when Anton Schindler asserted that Beethoven was influenced by Shakespeare's "The Tempest," that the sonata got its nickname. Donald Francis Tovey wrote that this sonata "is, like Prospero, almost as far beyond tragedy as it is beyond mere foul weather ... But people who want to identify Ariel and Caliban and the castaways, good and villainous, may as well confine their attention to the exploits of Scarlet Pimpernel when the Eroica or the C minor Symphony is being played." Pianists will delight in the sturdy spiral binding, which allows the score to lie flat when opened to any page.
