This book contains five graphic analyses of the opening movement of Beethoven’s sonata Op. 31/2. The analyses are based on essays published in Beethoven’s Tempest Sonata: Perspectives on Analysis and Performance, edited by Pieter Bergé, William E. Caplin, and Jeroen D’hoe (Leuven, 2009). While the earlier collection was conceived primarily for an academic readership, the present volume is also intended for practical musicians. The musical score itself accordingly serves as the point of departure, with analytical remarks introduced at the moment at which the relevant music appears. In so doing, this book aims to offer performers analytical insights within the familiar context of sitting at the piano, and following the chronology of the musical process itself. Five different analytical perspectives are presented: motivic (Pieter Bergé and Jeroen D’hoe); Schenkerian (Poundie Burstein); form-functional (William E. Caplin); “sonata-theory” (James Hepokoski); and metrical (William Rothstein).
