Here is the passage I am talking about: So starting at measure 291, there is a passage where 7th chords go up … spelling the E as Fb which doesn't fit with the key signature at all. As predicted it goes upwards to G#dim7. But here, Beethoven breaks the pattern of 2 diminished 7ths followed by a major scale. If …

There is one thing that brought me this question. Well 2 actually. First off is Wim Winters and his Authentic Sound channel where he argues that Beethoven is using double beat for his tempos. He … 210 BPM. But didn't tempo start getting standardized in Beethoven's time? Wasn't it clear at that time that 210 BPM is not any sort of Allegro? In that case, why would Beethoven write such an …

Most people argue that because Beethoven kept pushing the boundaries further and further on sonata form and dissonance that he started the Romantic Revolution.

C minor chord. With the bass being Ab though, it can't be C minor(unless Beethoven wrote this bit to be polytonal(which I seriously doubt)). Also, there being no G really weakens the C minor …

the minor dominant of the mediant to the mediant. Now that is weird, even for Beethoven. I have seen the minor dominant being used a few times in the sonata, but that's just it, the minor dominant of … the tonic, not the minor dominant of the mediant. I have even seen Beethoven use this minor dominant when he is in a major key. But it is still unusual to have the minor dominant of the mediant appear …

I can't seem to find non-harmonic analyses of Beethoven's sonatas. And I'm not a classical music analyzer. That makes it hard to write a sonata in the style of Beethoven when I don't know what … Beethoven and late Mozart sound similar but as Beethoven wrote more works, they diverged to be more towards Chopin's style than that of Mozart. Somewhere in between those 2 is what I would consider to be …

I am learning Piano Sonata no. 1 in F minor by Beethoven. It looks way easier than the Pathetique Sonata and in a sense it is.
