Three early works by Ludwig van Beethoven, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Johannes Brahms already show their mastery in perfection: the classcial sonata by Beethoven, Mendelssohn’s grace and elegance shown by his famous Rondo capriccioso and the monumental piano sonata in five movements by Brahms, that pushed the boundaries of the sonata form of that time. What they have in common: A brimming joy of life!
