Piano Sonatas

Robert Schumann composed three Piano Sonatas as below:

- Op.11 in F-sharp minor
- Op.22 in G minor
- Op.14 in F minor

The reason they are not in Opus order is that Op.22 was composed over a 3 years period but was started before Op.14. While Op.11 and Op.22 are famous Schumann works, the F minor is rather infamous. The reason is probably that it is a difficult piece to interpret well enough the keep the listener's attention all the way through.
