Variations on a late Beethoven Bagatelle sketch

Postby gprengel » Thu Apr 16, 2009 8:16 pm

Recently a short sketch for a Bagatelle from 1826 was identified among Beethoven's sketches. On this beautiful melancholic piece I enlarged a bit the second theme and wrote 7 variations for piano elaborating the melody itself as also the bass line: Theme Andante - Allegretto - Moderato - Allegro - Allegro agitato - Cantabile - Lento - Allegro ma non troppo (Fugato).

You may read it and listen to it at:

What do you think of this?
