Window to the Heart
By Randall Hartsell
This romantic-style solo speaks right to the heart with its lyrical melody and provides opportunities for shaping phrases and working on musicality. The key of E-flat major offers a rich harmonic background for the creative left hand accompaniment that consists of broken fifths. Moving around the keyboard with ease is a must to establish the languid mood and create a smooth, andante tempo in 4/4 meter. Older students and adults will find this piece quite appealing and expressive.
