Piano Sonata no. 15 in D 'Pastoral', Op. 28

Piano Sonata no. 15 in D, Op. 28, sometimes nicknamed Pastoral (or Pastorale) was published in 1801 and dedicated to Count Joseph von Sonnafels. This sonata never got to be as famous as its predecessor (the Moonlight sonata) though it is admired for the intricacy and technicality hidden in the ease it portrays. Though the work itself was written at a time in which Beethoven was alarmed by his worsening hearing conditions, the work itself paints a serene mood. Its nickname was coined by Beethoven's publisher.
