Bagatelle in D Major

This tuneful Bagatelle in D Major, Opus 33, No. 6 is perfect for the intermediate-level pianist.

It is one of Beethoven's best known bagatelles, and is a favorite among pianists.

This Bagatelle features a Rondo form :
  • M. 1-8 : Theme in D Major
  • Mm. 9-12 : Contrasting section A starting in B minor and modulating to D Major
  • Mm. 13-20 : Theme returns, unaltered (except for the left hand in m. 13)
  • Mm. 21-30 : Contrasting section B in F# minor, based on the first motive of the theme; ends on a fermata on F#
  • Mm. 31-38 : Theme returns, unaltered
  • Mm. 39-46 : Contrasting section C in D Major, which is in fact a variation on the theme
  • Mm. 47-50 : Contrasting section A (same as mm. 9-12)
  • Mm. 51-58 : Theme returns, unaltered
  • Mm. 59-62 : Contrasting section A, varied (played in sixteenth notes instead of eighth notes)
  • Mm. 63-70 : Contrasting section C returns, unaltered
  • Mm. 71-end : Coda made of descending D Major scales over a D pedal in the left hand
Please take note that according to the performance practice of the Classical period, the trills (such as in measure 3) should be played on the beat, starting on the upper auxiliary note.

Duration : 02:39
