Ludwig van Beethoven was a German composer and pianist. The crucial figure in the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western art music, he remains one of the most famous and influential composers of all time.
Beethoven’s Piano Sonata op. 13 in C minor also known as ” Pathetique ” is by far the most well-known work from his early creation, composed in 1798 but published in 1799 and dedicated to prince Karl Lichnowsky. Some sources attribute the title to Beethoven himself, while others state that the title was given by the publisher of the sonata, who was so impressed by its tragic sonorities that he proposed Beethoven the name Pathetique.
