Ludwig van Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 23 in F minor, Op. 57 (colloquially known as the Appassionata, meaning "passionate" in Italian) is among the three famous piano sonatas of his middle period (the others being the Waldstein, Op. 53 and Les Adieux, Op. 81a); it was composed during 1804 and 1805, and perhaps 1806, and was dedicated to Count Franz von Brunswick.

Horowitz had performed the Beethoven Sonata in D, Op. 10, No. 3 publicly in the 1940s, so he was well aquainted with it when this recording was made. The first movement is taken at a fast tempo, with some drawn out ritards at climaxes. The rhythmic vitality of Horowitz's performance, and his capturing of Beethoven's humor, are a delight

Unlike the early Sonata No. 8, Pathétique, the Appassionata was not named during the composer's lifetime, but was so labelled in 1838 by the publisher of a four-hand arrangement of the work. One of his greatest and most technically challenging piano sonatas, the Appassionata was considered by Beethoven to be his most tempestuous piano sonata until the twenty-ninth piano sonata (known as the Hammerklavier).
