The piano was Beethoven's own instrument, and it was developing quickly during his lifetime. Throughout his career, Beethoven was constantly pushing the instrument's capacities and limits, and every facet of his imagination and creativity is illustrated in the 32 Piano Sonatas. Covering a broad range of styles, effects, forms, emotion and expression, many believe that the key to fully understanding Beethoven's genius and impact is revealed by the Piano Sonatas.
