Ludwig van Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 3 in C major, Op. 2, No. 3, is a sonata written for solo piano, composed in 1796. It is dedicated to Joseph Haydn and is often referred to as Beethoven's first virtuosic piano sonata. It is both the weightiest and longest of the three Opus 2 sonatas, lasting over 25 minutes, presenting many difficulties, including difficult trills, awkward hand movements, and wrist rotation. It's Beethoven's second longest piano sonata in his early period, only to Beethoven's Grand Sonata, published a year later.
