Moonlight Sonata

Author Comments

I was inspired by 'Diagnosing genius: the life and death of Beethoven' by Martin Mai. I'm really into his dark way of composing, and haven't played anything of Beethoven yet. Also the Video Lectures of Jonathan Biss at the Curtis institute of music, gave me lots of help. So this month's classical piece will be the Piano Sonata No. 14 in C-sharp minor (Op. 27, No. 2) - written by Beethoven, also known as the Moonlight Sonata (completed in 1801).

So the process took me 3 days to study the sheets and in the end it was recorded by Feau, who did a great job mixing and mastering the piece. You should check out her site:

I love it, so clean and no backgrounds noise interruption

I have a special place in my heart for Beethoven. Always. That being said, the EQ needs work; lows are too low and end up making it sound muddy, while the mid- and higher-range notes end up getting washed out. Other than that, it sounds lovely.

Nice work, overall. Polish up the EQ issues and you'll be golden. One of my all-time favorites of Ludwig van Beethoven's many outstanding compositions, so thank you for that. :)
