Bagatelle in E flat Major



This tuneful Bagatelle in E flat Major, Opus 33, No. 1 is perfect for the intermediate to advanced pianist.

This is one of Beethoven's best known bagatelles, and it is a favorite among late-intermediate piano players.

It has the following Rondo form :
  • M. 1-8 : Theme in E flat Major
  • Mm. 9-24 : Contrasting section A still in E flat Major
  • Mm. 25-32 : Theme returns, with its second phrase varied
  • Mm. 33-50 : Contrasting section B in E flat minor, based on the starting motif of the theme (its first three notes, but now in the minor mode, and slurred); modulates to B flat Major (m. 43) and then back to E flat Major (m. 47)
  • Mm. 51-58: Theme returns, identical to mm. 25-32
  • Mm. 59-74: Contrasting section A, identical to mm. 9-24
  • Mm. 75-82: Theme returns, with its second phrase slightly varied
  • Mm. 83-end : Coda in E flat Major
Please take note that according to Beethoven's performance practice, the appoggiaturas (such as in measures 1 and 2) should always begin ON the beat.

Duration : 03:50
