Beethoven: Rondo a capriccio in G Major, Op. 129, “Rage over a lost penny”-fortepiano performance

It was written between between 1795 and 1798, and I am in agreement with Robert Schumann who regarded it as merry rather than angry. It was Anton Schindler who wrote “Rage over a lost penny” on the manuscript, not Beethoven. There’s definitely humour in it!
