Bagatelle in C major, WoO56

? 1804; first published in 1888

The C major Allegretto WoO56, essentially a minuet and trio, was first published in 1888, and was probably composed in 1804. Its coda begins by inverting the two strands of the minuet’s closing bars, with the right hand taking what had previously been the left-hand part, and vice versa.

L’Allegretto en ut majeur, WoO56, qui est en fait un menuet et trio, a probablement été composé en 1804. Publiée pour la première fois en 1888, sa coda commence par inverser les deux lignes des dernières mesures du menuet, la main droite jouant ce qui était auparavant la partie de la main gauche, et inversement.

Das Allegretto in C-Dur, WoO56, das im Wesentlichen ein Menuett und Trio ist, wurde erstmals im Jahre 1888 herausgegeben, und war wahrscheinlich 1804 entstanden. Die Coda beginnt damit, dass die beiden Stränge der letzten Takte des Menuetts umgekehrt werden, wobei die rechte Hand das spielt, was davor in der linken lag, und umgekehrt.
