Presented in this volume are two short sonatas, Opus 49: Sonata in G minor (No. 1, 1798) and Sonata in G Major (No. 2, 1796). Favorites of many piano teachers, these sonatas are appropriate for intermediate level pianists and are edited and recorded by noted Beethoven scholar and concert pianist, Robert Taub.
