Восстановив и заново перечитав текст Баха, наконец принялся за сочинения, заканчивающие огромный массив подготовки программ этого сезона – сонаты Бетховена. Фа и ре мажор. Соответственно, по порядку номера шесть и семь. Два чудесных сочинения, пожалуй, из самого творчески удачного периода Бетховена. Замечательная детская музыка.
