In the essay, please describe a piano piece where Ludwig van Beethoven uses fugue or fugal writing (“fugal writing” meaning of or relating to a fugue, or composed in the style of a fugue). I would like you to focus on the Piano Sonata No. 31 in A flat major, Op. 110. Please focus especially on the “Adagio ma non troppo – Allegro ma non troppo” movement from this Sonata, which includes two fugues.
As other examples of Beethoven’s piano compositions which include fugal writing, you can also include/mention: Piano Sonata No. 29 in B flat major Op. 106 “Hammerklavier” (especially the 4th movement); String Quartet Op. 130 (1825) (the fugue from this quartet was later published separately as Op. 133, the Groe Fuge (“Great Fugue”)); The Symphony No. 9 in D minor Op. 125. Focus on the Piano Sonata Op. 110 by Beethoven.
