An ecossaise, derived from the French word for “Scottish”, was a dance that was very popular in Europe in the early nineteenth century. Beethoven was enamored with the music of the British Isles, and composed this work in 1810; though he withheld it from publication, it was published posthumously. Beethoven’s humor and playfulness abound in this delightful arrangement for young players. (1:35).
