I came upon this scene, just as you see it, while walking through Bicentennial Gardens, then wondered why this music was chosen for the sculpture, “Music Stand and Bench”, by Jim Gallucci. I’ll have to contact him for that answer, but if you listen to the sonata and sit on the bench, it will come to you.
The Piano Sonata No. 14 in C-sharp minor “Quasi una fantasia”, Op. 27, No. 2 (aka the Moonlight Sonata), is a piano sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven, dedicated to Countess Giulietta Guicciardi, a 16-year-old aristocrat who was his student for a short time. It is one of his most popular compositions for the piano. He was about 30 years old when he wrote the sonata, having already made a name for himself in Vienna as pianist and composer.
