Beethoven continued to experiment with the four-movement form with his Op. 27. The slow first movement of the so-called ‘Moonlight’ Sonata (Op. 27, No. 2) evokes an image of a serene mossonlit night. Op. 28 is no less poetic than ‘Moonlight’. It was given its nickname ‘Pastoral’ by Beethoven’s publisher for its rustic character.
