    3. Impossibile poter apprezzare questo testo che la chiave per entrare ancora pi profondamente nello scheletro delle sonate senza conoscere bene la musica Ma non le 7 note l armonia, le regole compositive, le assonanze con Mozart, la struttura tecnica dello strumento, le notazioni musicali Saper distinguere tra allegro e allegro assai, e riconoscere l uso del pedale o la nota di partenza di un trillo Saper scorrere le partiture e seguire il fiuto di R nel trovare gli errori, o le sviste tipografich [...]


    4. This book probably has somewhat of a niche audience, but I find myself squarely in that niche Beethoven s 32 piano sonatas comprise the ultimate achievement in the form, never to be rivaled since I have loved and studied these works for years now I look forward to reading what Rosen has to say about them Well, I ended up mostly skimming this book There is a lot of good information contained in there, but I found that it was not presented in a way that makes this very conducive to casual reading [...]
