Chopin Piano Sonata No. 3 in B minor Op. 58 - 1. Allegro


  • Code:  C-2541
  • Content: 5 Elements

The Sonata No. 3 in B minor, Op. 58 was composed in 1844 and published in 1845. It retains the dramatic structuring inherited from the Classics. Here, as in Mozart and Beethoven, the composition – rendered coherent by means of differences, contrast and end-weighting – comprises four movements. The narrative of the first movement, Aallegro maestoso, rises and falls, ranging from accents of strength, from tumult and terror, to moments of nocturne-like quietude, before ultimately finding a haven in the two lyrical themes. It is they that fill the reprise, concluding the first act of the Sonata in lyrical exultation.
