Beethoven Piano Sonata no.14, Op.27. no. 2, Quasi Una Fantasia in C sharp Minor on Fortepiano

Trevor Stephenson plays the first movement on a traditional 18th-century replica fortepiano made by Norman Sheppard.

Forget modern pianos- THIS is how it should sound…

And this is the full sonata played by Ronald Brautigam on a Paul Mc Nulty fortepiano. Ronald plays the first movement more slowly, but Trevor’s tempo is closer to what Beethoven intended.
