The Moonlight Sonata was a celebrated musical piece written by Ludwig van Beethoven.
The Cyberman Bremm, known to the public as the Silver Turk, played it on the piano at the 1873 Vienna Exposition. His 5 o'clock performance on the 11 September was interrupted by the Eighth Doctor during adagio sostenuto. (AUDIO: The Silver Turk)
The music retained its popularity into the 2002nd century. Gorky Sax once listened to the Moonlight Sonata aboard Trear Station to calm himself down after a stressful encounter with his boss Vortia Trear. (AUDIO: The Year After I Died)
Behind the scenes Edit
None of the stories identify the name of the piece, but the famous adagio sostenuto, the first movement of the sonata, is clearly recognisable in each.
