Name and composer of this charming student piece?

I found this video on YouTube of the Yamaha NU1 hybrid:

Does anyone know the name of the piece and the composer?

It might be Burgmuller from his studies Op. 100. It's irritatingly familiar, but I can't place it definitively! Colin should be along shortly, I bet he'll know. Failing that try Yamaha themselves.
I play for my own amazement... :piano;

well done Gill!
I was going to suggest Burgmuller (by the LH chord vamp arabesque style) or Kuhlau...., and I have also heard this piece a few times.... could be an old ABRSM piece..... possibly grade 2 or 3. Well investigated :)

Thanks so much for finding the title and composer of this piece. As a result, there will be many happy piano students of mine who will be able to play it.
