Title: Pathetique Sonata 3rd. Mov.
Instrument: piano
Level: piano solo
Genre: classical

PATHETIQUE SONATA (3rd mv) by Beethoven is a LEV 5-8 (PS) intermediate piano solo, arranged by Laura Weed. There are two main differences between Beethoven's original and this version, which are 1) this version is much shorter than Beethoven's, and 2) this version does not use any eighth or sixteenth note grace notes, which are called embellishments or ornaments. Bottom line: This version is faithful to Beethoven's melodies and harmonies, while creating an easier version for pianists.     

Teaching concepts:

- Original key of C minor 
- C melodic minor includes raised 6th (A) and leading tone (B) 
- 4/4 time, common time, quadruple time, simple time
- NO grace notes or other embellishments! 
- LH broken chords create a beautiful legato
- Varied dynamics
- Phrasing includes legato and staccato
- Repetition and contrast
