At the age of 12, Beethoven wrote a trio of three-movement piano sonatas. Here's the first played on a harpsichord, although Beethoven probably intended it for a pianoforte.

“Beethoven was perhaps the first musician outside the Bach family to grow up playing Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, imprinting that classical music in his fingers and his heart… Here, for the first time, this giant of the past nourished a budding giant.” — Jan Swafford's Beethoven
