From the lesson. The first movement, in cut common time , is in the tonic key of F minor and in conventional sonata form , as was typical at Beethoven's time. A tense, agitated feel is ubiquitous throughout the movement. The piece opens with an ascending arpeggiated figure a so-called Mannheim Rocket , like that opening the fourth movement of Mozart 's Symphony No. This theme was used by Arnold Schoenberg for his initial example of sentence form.
This subject is reiterated and increasingly shortened until reaching a climatic half cadence in bar 8. After a short intriguing fermata , the ascending-arpeggio motif is now introduced on the dominant-minor key C minor , played by the left hand.
This is seamlessly continued by imitative sequences mm. Using the relative major as secondary key is the most conventional procedure for minor-key sonata expositions.

A new melodic subject based on a descending arpeggio is presented over a ceaseless dominant pedal in broken octaves mm. This subject clearly references the opening subject of the sonata, both being quarter-note arpeggios, whilst contrasting with it by inverting its contour descending vs. This dual quality of unity and contrast achieved by using the same musical material in opposite ways to articulate the tonic and secondary keys respectively , proved to be a very effective device for Beethoven, which he would use again for his other much more famous piano sonata in F minor.

The recapitulation mm. Most events from the exposition are reprised in the same order, with slight changes of dynamics and voicings. Most significantly, all the material previously stated on the secondary key is now restated in the tonic, so that this time the final perfect cadence is heard on the tonic-key, giving a satisfying resolution to the key dichotomy in the exposition.
To this end, the original transition to the secondary key is rewritten passing through the subdominant key and leading back to the tonic, which is a conventional procedure in classical sonata recapitulations. At the end of the recapitulation, instead of giving the perfect cadence in the exact parallel location to that of the exposition, Beethoven delays the resolution for an extra 6 bars, during which two 'fake' attempts at a final resolution in the subdominant and relative major keys, respectively heighten anticipation for the 'true' cadence.
