This bagatelle has an unsettled feel, beginning in with a C minor chord and ending with a G major chord after frequent delays in other keys. Very specific accents and pedal markings also add to its character. One will encounter numerous hand position changes as well as finger crossing, which is needed to keep the legato articulation. This is a good piece for increasing agility as well as producing an even tone.
