Alban Berg - Piano Sonata, Op. 1

I absolutely love this piece. It has been called a "formidable debut", and I would agree. It wrestles with tonality (this was around Schoenberg's "free atonal" phase), being somewhat loosely based around B minor (apparently), though it does all in it's power to break free.

The result is a thing of beauty.
