Moonlight Sonata (Mondscheinsonate)

I like classical style

"Moonlight" Sonata of L.v.Beethoven

No. 14 Op.27 No.2 C# Minor

Difficult to play but worth to try
Historical facts
Ludwig van Beethoven completed this piano sonata in 1801. It is said to be dedicated to Countess Giulietta Guicciardi. It is in C sharp minor. Beethoven included "Quasi una fantasia" in the title since it was violating the classical fast-slow-fast arrangements in sonata forms. In Italian, it means almost a fantasia.

I have tried to play first the Adagio sostenuto. Though made several mistakes here, I could not resist publishing it here. My target afterwards is to play Presto agitato. I like this final ferocious movement most; it somehow symbolizes our fight in life.
