Keyboard Sonata in C minor K.11


This is a plain score version in that it has minimal score detail characteristic of music printed from this era. A keyboard sonata that needs to be played with delicacy and both a lightness and clarity of touch. A tempo of 76 quarter note (crotchet) beats to the minute is recommended - the sonata should not be played too quickly as it loses its intimacy. Legato playing is required and the performance score has detailed suggested right and left hand fingering. The crossing of hands is also a feature requiring attention to the balance of the dynamics. The bar 20 trill has two options written in the score as to how it can be played. Whilst slowing down at the end of the main sections is appropriate this should not be exaggerated or start too soon.
