Der Kuss, Op 128
composer
author of text

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
In December 1822, Beethoven briefly put aside such monumental projects as his Missa solemnis and ‘Diabelli’ Variations to pen his comic gem Der Kuss, Op 128, termed by Beethoven an ‘ariette’. Providing music in the highest spirits, the composer underscored the punchline with a subtle recurring keyboard titter.
