Misty Morning is a nostalgic piece in 4/4 meter and C major that uses a simple, but engaging, melody to transport students to a tranquil landscape. The long, flowing lines of the A section contrast sharply with the B section that utilizes light staccato fifths in the left hand. This moment of dark contemplation transitions back to the beginning through the highly effective use of dynamics and ritardando. This solo is perfect for students wishing to paint a charming portrait with their performance and can also be performed with an optional duet accompaniment.
