The first edition of the score is headed ‘Sonata quasi una fantasia’ and the name “Moonlight Sonata” has its origins in remarks by the German music critic and poet Ludwig Rellstab. In 1932, five years after Beethoven’s death, Rellstab likened the effect of the first movement to that of moonlight shining on Lake Lucerne, within ten years, the name Moonlight Sonata” (Mordscheinsonate in German) was being used in German and English publications. Later in the 19th century, it could be said that the sonata was “universally known” by that name.
