Without exaggeration we can say Beethoven introduced a new chamber music genre: the sonata for (forte)piano and cello. With the exception of a few string quartets, Haydn and Mozart treat the cello in their chamber music mainly as a base instrument or as part of the basso continuo, with few melodic lines. With his sonatas for piano and cello, Beethoven places both instruments as if they were on the same level and herewith makes a start for further evolution and development of the genre.
