Program Notes

An ecossaise, derived from the French word for Scottish, was a dance that was very popular in Europe in the early 19th century. Beethoven was very fond of the music of the British Isles, and wrote this work, along with several other ecossaises, in 1810. He withheld it from publication, but it was published after his death. Beethoven's humor and playfulness abound in this delightful arrangement.
