A piece dedicated to a student, Giulietta Guicciardi, with whom Beethoven had fallen in love, the Moonlight Sonata has become a popular favorite for concert pianists. Its popularity transcends the bounds of style, drawing in even non-classical music fans with its dreamlike first movement, the Adagio.
Deeply personal, Beethoven's Adagio entrances listeners with its complex emotion. The peaceful, rolling movement of the arpeggios contrast with its haunting melody and somber bass line to portray the thought of someone who can find beauty in the midst of conflict.
