Regarding the first movement of Beethoven's Sonata No. 22, Kocsis explains that the tempo must be slower and that the performer should play as if it was a Minuet.

The student is also given some dynamic advice, about the importance of identifying and highlighting the main melody and other harmonic issues. The professor also talks about the expression of the material and the character, and about how to rely on the pedal to achieve the proper length and articulation of the notes.
