The Piano Sonata No. 14 in C-sharp minor "Quasi una fantasia", Op. 27, No. 2, by Ludwig van Beethoven, is also known as the "Moonlight" Sonata.

This version is the 1st 4 minutes of the 1st movement. It basically ends in the middle of the song during a dark brooding section...but I have added a chord to resolve it neatly. I have another version (3min) in which instead of ending in the middle of the song, the center portion of the song is removed, therefore keeping the original ending. Both versions are useful depending on your intention.

The work was completed in 1801
Beethoven included the phrase "Quasi una fantasia"
The work is possibly the most familiar of all Beethoven's piano sonatas.
