The Piano Sonata No. 24 in F-sharp major, Op. 78, nicknamed "À Thérèse" (because it was written for Duchess Thérèse von Brunswick) was written by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1809. It consists of two movements:

  1. Adagio cantabile - Allegro ma non troppo
  2. Allegro vivace

A typical performance takes 10 minutes. The common practice of leaving out long repeated sections, such as the development and recapitulation in the first movement, would make two or three minutes' difference to the total duration.

This sonata has sometimes been cited as being Beethoven's favorite amongst all his own piano sonatas.
