Violin Sonata No. 1 (Beethoven)
Ludwig van Beethoven's Violin Sonata No. 1 in D major is a violin sonata from his Opus 12 set, along with his Violin Sonata No. 2 and Violin Sonata No. 3. It was written in 1798 and dedicated to Antonio Salieri. Being an early work written around the period when Beethoven studied with Haydn, the sonata is for the most part written in a classical style much like that of Mozart or Haydn.
It has three movements:
- Allegro con brio
- Tema con variazioni: Andante con moto
- Rondo: Allegro
A typical performance lasts approximately 20 minutes.
