Recently a short sketch for a Bagatelle from 1826 was identified among Beethoven's sketches. On this beautiful melancholic theme, which actually is the last(!) idea Beethoven sketched for the piano, I 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).
Re: Varations on a late piano sketch from Beethoven
Hi, Nice work on this, I enjoyed hearing your playing very much.
If I understand correctly, the brief bit I heard on the link you gave was the basis for all the variations you created? That is pretty amazing, and I'm even more amazed that someone could de-code the hieroglyphics on the handwritten page I saw displayed. Thanks for sharing! John
