'''Piano Sonata No. 10 in G major''', Op. 14, No. 2, composed in 1798-1799, is an early-period work by Ludwig van Beethoven, dedicated to Baroness Josefa von Braun. A typical performance lasts 15 minutes. While it is not as well known as some of the more original sonatas of Beethoven's youth, such as the ''Pathétique'' or ''Moonlight'' sonatas, Donald Francis Tovey described it as an 'exquisite little work.'Tovey, D.F.
