Difficult ...

Beethoven op. 57 & 106 & 110 & 111
Liszt B minor
Scriabin #9 & #10
Prokofiev #6 & #7
Ives Concord Sonata
Boulez #2

... are obvious candidates for a title like "most attractive piano sonata", but how to elect "the most beautiful piano sonata"?

Is the concept of beauty thus relevant? Isn't music so much more than just beauty? E. g., truth.

Most beautiful? Well, that should prompt some highly rational, objective replies!
Of which this is not one.
I would probably nominate Beethoven Op.110. But with an honourable mention for Greig's Sonata.

Slightly off topic but the BSO Tanglewood is doing the full 5 Beethoven concerto cycle this weekend with Paul Lewis on piano and Andris Nelsons conducting.
