Piano Sonata no. 27 in Em, Op. 90

Beethoven's Sonata no. 27, Op. 90 was written in 1814 and dedicated to Count Moritz von Lichnowsky. Unlike traditional sonatas, it has only two movements. The first has a 3/4 tempo, sounding mysteriously agitated and rest and was described by Beethoven as 'a contest between the head and heart'. The second movement, a rondo in the tonic major, however, quiets down into a beautiful melody with a 2/4 rhythm. The two contrasting movements suggest an agitated situation calmed by restful contentness. Notably, Beethoven uses German tempo marks for both movements.
