Default 3 Piano Sonatas From "Interview with the Vampire"

I'm having trouble identifying 3 clips i recorded from the movie interview with the vampire. There clearly famous sonatas since I recognized them and many people I talked to did too. Heres where you can get them.
The last 2 seem may be a variation on moonlight sonata, but after comparing the speeds of each are very different and so are the notes they are played in so I may be wrong. If they are a variation is there anywere i can possibly get this variation. Thanks for your help, sry if the quality isnt that good I did my best to record it.

It's very difficult to understand, the theme sounds like in Beethoven style.

If I have correctly understood the title of the movie, on the IMDB there is a list of possible compositions by various composer, and actually is listed even Beethoven but there's not indication of any composition by him:


but, I repeat, is difficult to understand if it is an original Beethoven's composition (like a Sonata or something else) or a variation as already you suggested.

Any idea is very welcome.

The second and third wavs are both haydn's piano sonata 59 in e flat, adagio e cantabile, the latter being played at a slower tempo.

If you find out what piece the first wav is, *I'd* like to know.

I don't know the first one. I wish I did. However I am Positive that the 3rd one is Adagio e Cantabile from Sonata 59 in E flat Major, by Haydn. I bought the sheet music to that and I know that the 3rd one is definitely that. The second one is a variation on the 3rd. It has an added beginning, some ornaments, other additions, along with the tempo being sped up. I want the sheet music to the 2nd one because that version sounds so much cooler than the original. So, the second one is by Haydn, most definitely NOT Beethoven. Glad I could clear that up.
