    A revolutionary man living in a revolutionary time, Beethoven used the piano as his personal musical laboratory. The piano sonata became, more than any other genre of music, a place where he could experiment with harmony, motivic development, the contextual use of form, and, most important, his developing view of music as a self-expressive art.Beethoven's 32 piano sonatas include some of his most popular works as well as some of his most experimental.

    Jeffrey F. Rector says: "Entertaining and educational."
    "Style and delivery"

    What made the experience of listening to Beethoven's Piano Sonatas the most enjoyable?

    The music and Professor Greenberg's analyses.


    Any additional comments?

    Professor Greenberg gets in the way of his own material by interjecting asides and cracking jokes which triviializes the lectures.
