This piece is a very lively and popular Classical sonatina. Alberti bass, broken chords and scale figurations make this piece extremely  vigorous. Articulation should be decided carefully in this movement. The little development section, features a compound melody in the left hand. This needs to be treated carefully in terms of voicing. Having good scale and arpeggio technique will be benefit the execution of this fun piece.
