Beethoven, sonata no.6, op.10 no.2

Playing my favorite Sonata by my favorite pianist, Daniel Barenboim.

Ludwig van Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 6 in F major, Op. 10, No. 2, was dedicated to the Countess Anne Margarete von Browne, and written from 1796 to 1798.
This sonata is divided into three movements: Allegro in F major, Allegretto in F minor and Presto in F major

The first movement is in sonata form. The development is based on the C-B-C tag which concludes the exposition, with no clear use of any other material from the exposition. However, it creates many wonderful melodies, some of which can be moderately difficult to play.

Here is the first movement :

The second movement is in A-B-A form, with the return of the first section strongly embellished. It is more reminiscent of Beethoven's Bagatelles than of most of his scherzi. The middle section, in D-flat, has a hint of anticipation of the third movement of the First Symphony.

The third movement is in sonata form, with an extended fugal development.
Here is the second and the third movement :
