About Piano Sonata No. 14 “Moonlight”
The marking, Quasi una fantasia, can be interpreted from the Italian title as “in the nature of a fantasy,” or, “as if improvised.”
The piece is in three movements, with the First Movement, sometimes called (nicknamed, technically) “The Moonlight Sonata,” being probably the most famous. However, all three movements, especially the main themes of each, are familiar to countless millions over the last two centuries. (I mean, this is Ludwig van Beethoven we’re talking about here.)
Completed in 1801, Beethoven dedicated Sonata No.14 to his pupil, Countess Giulietta Guicciardi. He confessed to a friend that he was in love with her at the time. The nickname “Moonlight” was not given to Sonata No. 14 by Beethoven himself. It came into popularity after a music critic at the time used “moonlight” in his descriptions of the work.
