Rapid idea-flow/Bagatelle

God it's early... (about to go to harlech.. just taken Astrid to early train). I'd did this composition a few days ago. Was thinking of the rapid changes switches in mood and material that you sometimes find in Beethoven (the Bagatelles, for example). The ideas come thick and fast when notating stuff - faster than with an improvisation: changing gear is not a problem; sticking to a gear is more of a problem!
