#24 is A Thérèse?[edit]

I'm pretty sure that this edit is related to the recent apparently mistaken edit of Piano_Sonata_No._24_(Beethoven). I suggest a revert, but I'm going to withhold on this one for now. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Quendus (talkcontribs) 20:40, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

No. #24 is indeed nicknamed A Thérèse. The Fur Elise connection was perhaps a bit of a leap, but that connection is not implied in the template. DavidRF (talk) 04:25, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Who calls the 19th and 20th the "Two Easy Sonatas?"[edit]

Hi. I haven't seen the two sonatas labeled "two easy sonatas" elsewhere and wonder why they are here? Any sources? I don't think either Beethoven himself nor the publisher of these works titled or nicknamed them as such (like, say, the Pastoral) so again: is this a modern convention? Not even their page calls them that (although it does claim-without references-that "some pianists" consider them easy.) Just curious. Thanks122.26.51.187 (talk) 12:58, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

I agree. Whether or not this is conventional wisdom, I don't think it belongs in the template. 78.26 (talk) 14:15, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Categorize sonatas by early, middle, and late[edit]

Right now, sonatas in the template are divided into three main groups: sonatas 1-10, sonatas 11-20, and sonatas 21-32. Since these categories are somewhat arbitrary, I propose dividing the sonatas into time periods (early, middle, and late) according to the division suggested in the article on Beethoven's piano sonatas. In other words, the first section would be labeled 'Early (No. 1-11)' or 'Early sonatas (No. 1-11)' or 'Early period (No. 1-11)' and consist of sonatas 1-11, the second section would be labeled 'Middle (No. 12-27)' and include sonatas 12-27, and the third section would be labeled 'Late (No. 28-32)' and have sonatas 28-32.
