    I love them all. But the last three are very special.

    I suggest you practice/study the Op. 49 sonatas. Learn their subtleties, learn how to modify the feelings they impart, learn how to make them compliment each other.
    I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people don't like me anyway.

    Which to learn? I'm very partial to Op. 22 and Op. 10 No. 2, having played both.

    Also, partial to Pathetique, Op. 13, having played that, too (though I find the first two movements stronger than the finale, I'm afraid).

    My two favorite sonatas by Beethoven are Op. 111 and Op. 110 (in that order). They're light years above my capabilities to conceptualize, but they are extraordinary.

    My favorite for the longest time has been been 'The Hunt'; e-flat, no.18, op.31/no.3
