- It is too long
- It is difficult to tune
- It doesn't really go anywhere
- Yet it eventually becomes four closely connected As in unison with the piano
- Later to turn into trills, also in unison with the piano
Is there a possibility that Beethoven is telling me something I hadn't thought of before? I had known that this sonata is about the difference between tones that are stable and tones that move, usually by sliding rather by articulated motion. But this is a kind of tone motion I had not yet figured out.
