2/16 Ludwig's "Happy-Sad" Bagatelle

Babies and Beethoven: Infants can tell happy songs from sad, BYU study shows
I came across this little bagatelle quite by accident, Beethoven's "Happy-Sad" Bagatelle.  It's a seemingly light little trifle - but it's great fun - you can very easily tell where it goes from "happy" to "sad" with hardly any effort at all.  Actually the "happy" part makes me sad, and the "sad" part makes me happy...

Bagatelle Lustig-Traurig (Happy-Sad Bagatelle in C minor) WoO.54 (1802)
