A common reaction to the first movement of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata (often this is the only movement known) is to find it beautiful but too sad to listen to very often.

  • The angels have the Arc Light:

    The ‘Moonlight’ sonata is one of those pieces that’s as much about the spaces between the notes as it is the notes themselves.
    I don’t find it depressing. It reminds me of standing outside at night with a soft wind playing….

  • Silvara:

    Yes I do, it relaxes me rather than depresses me

  • Rottweiler dude:

    I love it….I used to try to play the opening movement on the piano….I have not done that for a while, though. It has been a while since the last time I listened to it, as well….although I have a few recordings of it in my CD collection.
    I love most piano music….
