I'm just guessing the meaning of these sonatas. Is any of them at least close?

Sonata in A minor = Underage sonata

Sonata Pathétique = Pitiful sonata

Beethoven sonata = Roasted beets sonata

Haydn sonata = Invisible sonata

Sonata da chiesa = Cheese sonata

Cage sonata (if there be such): this one almost writes itself (with unlimited answers), provided there are any, which I don't know smile

(I see he did write a few)

The “moon” light sonata…oh, blush maybe I shouldn’t go there, although, from everything I’ve read about Beethoven, he might have mooned a few people.

Haha! I always smile when I read the german version of that sonata name ("Mondscheinsonate"). Reminds me that Beethoven was quite fond of the bottle, although it was probably not moonshine.

.....which is just about what it is. ha *

Last week we were talking about the other Beethoven B-flat major Sonata.
Funnily, for all the fame and 'greatness' of the Hammerklavier, I'd guess that not very many people who know both sonatas would say the Hammerklavier is their favorite Beethoven sonata in B-flat major.


* except for the slow movement

Boulez Piano Sonata #3 - "The No-Hope-of-a-Tune Sonata."


The Boulez Sonata #2 - "The Destruction Sonata." ("According to Boulez, the work can be seen as an effort to destroy traditional forms." Quote from Wikipaedia. I do this all the time, even when playing Haydn!)

Yes, we can do with a little Liszt, although I can always pass on the Sonata.

I prefer to play the son of a sonata, whether by Liszt or anyone else. Younger and more contemporary, somehow.
