Sonata quasi una fantasia' was Beethoven's title, and yet the music world knows this composition as the 'Moonlight Sonata' - an epithet that was already in the air during the composer's lifetime. 'The lake rests in a dim moonlight; The wave hits the dark shore', Ludwig Rellstab wrote about the 1st movement in 1823. 'It is as if one were to see a colossal grave in the middle of a lonely plain, palely lit by the crescent of the moon,' Wilhelm von Lenz put it. Beethoven may have been inspired by the sound of the Aeolian harp, as Murray Perahia and Norbert Gertsch explain on the basis of recent research in the introductory texts to this edition.
