The Op. 79 was announced by Breitkopf & Härtel in Leipzig in December 1810 as "sonatine pour le pianoforte." It was also registered at London's copyright registry on August 31, 1810, by the English publisher Muzio Clementi. It is not possible to ascertain exactly when the English edition was available to the public, but it may be that it predates the German edition. Although the Op. 79 bears no dedication, Beethoven may have planned to use it as a gift for Therese Malfatti, a woman with whom he was romantically involved. An autograph of the Op. 79 is extant and is now in Beethoven-Haus, Bonn. Dr. Stewart Gordon's editions of Beethoven's most popular piano sonatas provide the key to a stylistic performance. Thorough research of the earliest available sources has enabled Dr. Gordon to produce the most accurate reflection of the composer's intent. Each sonata contains helpful fingering suggestions and performance recommendations.

"When my fiancé told me he wanted an acoustic guitar for his birthday, I had no idea how I was going to pull it off. However, this site made it very easy for me. It is very easy to find what you are looking for and the "related items" helped me pick out some accessories. I did experience a problem when it came to shipping. One of my items was reported as delivered by UPS. But when I contacted ActiveMusician, they sent out another stand right away, and it still arrived in time! I have nothing but good things to say about this site, and I have already started telling everyone about them!"

"I'd like to say I am extremely pleased with the service your company has provided me. I'll be receiving my new Sonor Force tomorrow and am very excited. This shopping experience has been pleasant and satisfying. The price was killer and the kit will be awesome. Also, sending me the drum heads I wanted free of charge was an unexpected bonus that I will never forget."

"ActiveMusician has exceeded all my expectations of an on line equipment purchase. Not only did you confirm my shipment within minutes of my inquiry, you upgraded for Saturday delivery in an emergency situation. And you went the extra mile again to provide tracking numbers to my home and work e-mail. It was an absolute pleasure doing business with you and I will recommend your services to anyone looking to buy online."
