There are 3 other sonatas attributed to Beethoven marked as WoO. They may be spurious, If genuine they are all works composed prior to the first Opus 2 sonatas. they are as follows:

No. 33 in E flat major, WoO 47, No. 1 "Kurfurstensonaten"
No. 34 in F major, WoO 47, No. 2 "Kurfurstensonaten"
No. 35 in D major, WoO 47, No. 3 "Kurfurstensonaten"

Update (11-16-11): I forgot to mention three more sonatas by Beethoven that may also be spurious:

No. 36 in C major, WoO 51 supposedly written in 1798 after the 4th sonata.
No. 37 in G major, Anh 5, No. 1, also supposedly written in 1798
No. 38 in F major, Anh 5, No. 2

The latter two are Sonatinas. I just happen to have recordings of all of these.


Yeah. Nicolas I say that you had done that. Great job. Since MegaMattaurs3004 wants to do that one, I'll let him/her decide on that. I've done a notation of the first movement as well, but I haven't posted it. I think I'll hold onto it for now.

Well, I'm here (just as I promised). I'm willing to take Sonata No. 8 ("Pathetique") assuming anyone else hasn't done a project about this already that wants to contribute. Since I don't have a Pro account (and I've maxed out my upload limit), you can expect it from my alternate account (wih my alternate e-mail).

Don't know why that posted twice. What I meant to say in the 2nd one was that I noticed that Nicolas posted the first movement of the Moonlight. Nicolas are you planning on doing the other movements? If not, then Mega could do the others.

Also, if someone is looking for some shorter works to do, the 19th and 20th sonatas - Opus 49 are each only 2 movements and are more like Sonatinas than Sonatas. Also, No's 22, 24 and 27 are two movements each.

Nope. I don't plan to make other transcriptions of Beethoven's sonatas. Or other movements. If I do, I will report here before starting. I was not aware of this group when I did the Moonlight sonata.

Nicolas, that's because this group probably wasn't around when you did your "Moonlight" project.
Also, Bran92405, you can delete comments that you wrote on a discussion, and since you're the admin, you can also delete any comment. So if you want to remove those duplicate comments, feel free.

Also, Bran92405, I would like to let you know that after doing a lot of research, I noticed that a number of sources said that the Pathetique was part of Opus 13. Your thoughts?

I've added four movements, one each from four sonatas to this group. I am not sure whether they are appropriate since in each case but one I separated the music into four parts. So the resulting sheet music might not be convenient for sight-reading but this gives more flexibility in separating the parts for midi. I created these for study before I was aware of this group. The sonatas are numbers 9, 16, 18 and 32.

Sonata 1 Opus 2 is taken
I'd like to do this one because my music teacher set me it for my GCSE, so I hope to have it up soon! :)

It's great to hear that so many have responded and are taking on the task of notating these sonatas. With the holiday season nearly through I intend to invest some more time to this project. Thanks to all who are involved in this project, and I wish everyone a very happy New Year.


Opus 90 is taken - my favourite one!
Could one of you pros download Op 2 No 1 and reupload it?

Opus 2 no. 1 is one of my favorites, and I've already completed part of the 1st movement. I can play the 2nd movement fairly well. It's beautiful. Beethoven borrowed a bit from Mozart's 25th symphony for the 1st movement.

I've updated the Pathetique sonata. After this much time, you'd probably think I'd gotten a little more done than what's written, but sorry. Things have been going very slowly, and the fact that I'm trying to finish up one of my own sonatas doesn't help.

In reply to by Bran92405

I believed the same pattern, a Mannheim rocket, is also in Mozart's 40th symphony in the last movement. I believed Beethoven copied part of the last movement out in one of his sketchbooks. The third movement of the famous 5th symphony by Beethoven uses a similar pattern in the scherzo movement. Great symphonies :)

Doesn't seem like Sonata no. 29, Op. 106 was taken, so I'll take it since I've already been working on the fugue

I don't think I have the skill, but I could try op.111 ( one of the pinnacles of human genius ). Has anyone ever thought of an online version of the Well Tempered Clavier?

I'm going to do the “Appassionata” Sonata (No. 23, Opus 57), but I will just take the 1st Movement to this group because we already have both the other Movements here.

Hi everyone. I've been apart from the web for about 6 months. Was having fun, so don't worry. I had to purchase a new set of Beetoven Sonata score books, 'cause I departed from the set I owned (don't ask). Hope to be submitting something very soon, (well as soon as I can resurrect my dead computer :( ......)

Hi Nicolas. Thanks for the great spreadsheet. I hadn't realized we'd come so far with this project. I had some recent issues (over the last 10 months) that have kept me away from the internet, so I haven't been able to track this group too well. I'll be checking in from time to time.
