This arrangement is the 1st movement (“Adagio sostenuto”) of the Piano Sonata No. 14 in C-sharp minor "Quasi una fantasia", Op. 27, No. 2, by Ludwig van Beethoven, popularly known as the "Moonlight" Sonata. The Sonata was written 1801 and rumored to be dedicated to his pupil, 17-year-old Countess Giulietta Guicciardi, with whom Beethoven was, or had been, in love. The name "Moonlight" Sonata derives from an 1832 description of the first movement by music critic Ludwig Rellstab, who compared it to moonlight shining upon Lake Lucerne. Even in its day, this work was very popular - to the point of exasperating the composer, who remarked to Czerny, "Surely I've written better things."
