Ranging from easy to intermediate level, these popular pieces display a wide variety of moods and musical ideas and are favorites with students and accomplished pianists alike.The Romantic era abounded in short compositions for piano: etudes, serenades, impromptus, and other miniatures. Beethovens term for his refined little piano gems was Kleinigkeiten — small things — or bagatelles. Although the public expected symphonic abundance from a composer of his stature, Beethoven was reputed to take particular satisfaction in the challenge of distilling his musical ideas into a concentrated form. Reprinted from authoritative editions, this collection presents all 27 of the composers bagatelles, including the well-loved Für Elise.
