Identifying a piano sonata



Could you please help me to identify a piano sonata? If it helps, I remember playing it in my second year of piano classes.

I tried sound search with shazam, sound hound and midomi, to no avail.

This is a recording of the first cadenza of the sonata.

Results of a Musipedia keyboard search (URL below) claim that this melody is from Beethoven's Symphony No. 1 in C, 1st movement, 2nd theme, but I'm listening now and haven't spotted it yet.

Try finding piano pieces that are explicitly in C major. Your passage is in C major, after all. It definitely sounds like classical music to me (I suspect it's from before the Romantic era, too). – Dekkadeci – 2018-04-02T23:32:09.613

Don't know it, but I'd be looking through Mozart sonatas. That Alberti bass is pretty characteristic. – BobRodes – 2018-04-03T06:13:26.937

I'm with @Bob on this one, it sounds like the start of one of Mozart's sonata's in C major. He wrote a lot of sonata's, but only a small part of them are in C. – Mast – 2018-04-03T14:40:35.617
