Beethoven Piano Sonatas

Beethoven Sonata cycle...this far by faith!

Since online storage is so useful, I've decided to keep track of the sonatas and discrete movements I've learned. The sonatas I can play are bold indigo; if you're wondering at what level I play the Indigo Sonatas, they're either at public performance level or will be there as soon as I have them scheduled for a live gig.

[update] As it turned out, I've indigoed only the sonata number and opus number rather than going through and indigoing all the separate movements; for most of the sonatas I play all the movements, anyway.
