Yes!

And I think, the Moonlignts's first mouvement, and the Op.49 are very intresting for interpretation, plus there are not big technical difficulties in these sonatas, so it's more and more intresting for interpretation for those who are not advanced technically.

It's generally considered to be bad form to perform only one movement of a sonata, though. I'm sure all of us have played the first movement of the Moonlight before, but it's not the sort of thing you can put on a recital program.

Well, I started with the third mouvement of the Sonata, but it's not considered so bad now, I think, to play one mouvement, you can put one mouvement in a recital program...but about Bach's music, I prefere playing the whole Prelude and Fugue, not just the prelude or the fugue alone, in a recital.

The second and third movements to the Pathetique aren't too difficult, and then you can work your way through the first (I did it at three years experience). It's very rewarding to learn a piece like that, early in your musicianship.

Moonlight's first and second are cake... but you must consider the third movement. It's very difficult...

I agree with Op.49. Not too hard, but not simple.

I don't know of any "Sonata" that's "easy"... Sonatina's, yes.... Sonatas by some non-piano composers, yes again... Playing Beethoven, Chopin, Mozart, etc... all very difficult sonatas.

and I agree that Mozart is more difficult than it sounds... but I hate the way it sounds.
