The last movement of Beethoven’s Sonata No. 6 in F major is a zippy little movement entitled “Presto” which means is supposed to mean “very quick tempo” but when you actually hear it, sounds more like “at breakneck speed”. This piece sounds either like running late for work on a Friday morning … or clearing out FAST for the weekend at the end of the day. It’s humorous and thunderous all at once.
