This lively dance will fit small hands but it is big on style and character. The key (D minor) and the tempo (quasi scherzando) help to create the Slavic style indicated by the title. Teachers will find this solo to be an excellent study of several technical skills: legato vs. staccato playing, voicing left-hand melodies and moving around the keyboard. Students will find it to be a satisfying and fun piece to play. It is sure to be a hit on recitals or contests.
