JEFFREY CHAPPELL - PIANIST
Sonata Opus 78, Second Movement, by Beethoven
From the October 4, 2009 recital on the Bosendorfer Imperial Grand Piano at Frederick (MD) Community College. Unusual for its key of F# Major and for being in only two movements, this sonata was once declared by Beethoven to be his favorite. Its dedication to Therese von Brunswick, a strong candidate for the identity of Beethoven's “Immortal Beloved”, could explain his remark.
