The composer, however, was less enthusiastic. To his pupil Czerny he said once: "people always talk about my Sonata in C-sharp minor. I did write better ones for example the one in F-sharp minor, and other things.."

The length of this movement itself (691 measures) is as long as a whole symphony in the previous generation and it is what made this movement ‘heroic’. Beethoven treated the main melody in this movement like a character in a drama.
