An arpeggiated accompaniment and a smooth melodic line give this intermediate piece in 4/4 meter its tender mood. Repeated patterns make it accessible, and contrasting dynamics keep it interesting. Rubato throughout provides students with the opportunity for individual interpretation. Although written in the key of G major, the piece has many accidentals throughout, which helps students develop attention to detail. A Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selection.
