The Piano Sonata No. 14 in C♯ minor Op. 27, No. 2, also known as the Moonlight Sonata, is a piano sonata written by Ludwig van Beethoven. This is one of my favorite piano sonatas especially the third and final movement in C♯ minor, because it is a very fast movement and creates a stormy feeling. The composition includes many fast arpeggios and broken chords as well as strong accented notes. Because this movement demands an energetic performance, it is one of the pieces that I always include in my practice as my master piano teacher reminds me to challenge myself in terms of technical skills and playing stamina and it also helps me to be more ferocious in my performance. I also love this piece because Beethoven's included many sforzando notes in his composition and along with the fortissimo passages, it creates a very powerful grand sound.
